Chardonnay Lightly Oaked

$19.50

Typically, Thornton produces a Chardonnay fermented in stainless steel tanks, and another Chardonnay fermented 100% in oak. For 2022, we decided to create a Chardonnay blend from a stainless-steel lot and another lot of Chardonnay that was fermented in oak barrels. The result is a wine with very subtle oak aromas and flavors along with crisp apple and citrus characters. It’s a perfect Chardonnay for those who like just a touch of oak character, without overwhelming oakiness.

Drink this Chardonnay immediately or give it a year or two of bottle age.

Aroma: Subtle oak, yellow apple with a touch of tropical fruits and minerality.
Palate: Elegant entry with the same apple and subtle oak found in the aroma. Balanced acidity finishing with a pleasant fruitiness and a touch of fresh green herbs.
Pairing: This Chardonnay is very versatile and will pair with similar foods to our stainless and reserve Chardonnays. Great with light appetizers and cheeses, chicken with light sauces, and baked mild fish.
