Saracina Unoaked Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
This Unoaked Chardonnay offers aromas of Anjou pear, nectarine and a crisp, sappy note. The palate shows stone fruit and ripe citrus flavors that are light and lively, unhampered by overbearing oak or malolactic influence. This is a pure expression of Chardonnay, a ray of sunshine that carries itself admirably without weight. Pair this versatile wine with simple steamed fish with fresh summer herbs, or move to the grill and serve it with chicken paillards with a snappy romesco.
This is a substantial, engaging wine that shows focused fruit flavors backed by lively, mouthwatering acidity. Ripe pear, peach and apple notes ride a full body that makes it mouth filling. Subtle hints of vanilla and ginger add complexity and seem to expand with each sip.
