Scott Family Arroyo Seco Estate Chardonnay 750ml
Arroyo Seco ("Dry Creek"), a sub-appellation of the Monterey AVA, enjoys a cool climate, producing an extended growing season (often 2 to 4 weeks longer than Napa Valley). This added hang time allows for greater fruit ripening and brighter acidity. The Estate's vineyards, inland from Big Sur, have deep, gravelly soils, ideal for premium Chardonnay cultivation. This unique combination of soil and climate produces relatively small berries with intense, concentrated flavors.Food Recommendations: We recommend pairing this wine with chilled corn & pistachio soup and your favorite crab cakes. Also delicious with soft cheeses such as a triple-cre8me cheese served with apples.Aromas & Flavors: Vibrant aromas of honeysuckle, lemon chutney, ripe pineapple and vanilla. This Chardonnay features a creamy mid-palate with a long finish, rich flavors of honeysuckle, lemon and tropical fruits with underlying toasty oak.
