J Chardonnay 2016
The bright and layered California Chardonnay opens with appealing aromas of crisp yellow apple, ginger snap and vanilla custard. Layered notes of baked peach, pineapple, roasted almond and Madagascar vanilla blend on the plush, full-bodied palate. The finish is long and bright, with hints of ginger and toasted coconut macaroon.
Pair this approachable Chardonnay with sauteed gulf shrimp, Romesco sauce over creamy polenta, Herbes de Provence-marinated grilled chicken with sharred lemon or aged Gouda with apricots and wildflower honey.
