Chardonnay is grown throughout the wine-producing world and is one of the most widely planted grapes worldwide. Originating and most famous in France’s Burgundy region, Chardonnay has found a great home in California.
Thornton Winery’s Chardonnay was sourced from Rick’s Vineyard in Monterey County and is fermented in stainless steel tanks with no oak contact. Drink this Chardonnay immediately or give it a year of bottle age.
Aroma: Yellow apple and lemon, with minerality a touch of dried green herbs.
Palate: Medium bodied with Meyer Lemon and tart green apple, it has nice mouthfeel finishing with balanced acidity and a touch of grapefruit pith.
Pairing: Stainless steel fermented Chardonnays are very versatile, and this wine is no exception. Great with light appetizers and cheeses, chicken with light sauces, and baked mild fish.
