Sonoma Cutrer Winemaker's Release 40th Anniversary Chardonnay 750ml
This is truly a fitting wine to celebrate our 40th anniversary It presents beautiful aromas of ripe pear, citrus/lime zest, baked apple fruit with light mineral notes and a touch of matchstick, flintiness for complexity. Oak components of spice, caramel, nougat and pie crust are integrated throughout. Melon and Bosc pear fruit along with lemon meringue flavors mingle with hints of toasted nuts, clove, nutmeg and oak. The wine strikes a balance between being full-bodied and delicate with a creamy mouthfeel highlighting our signature citrus acidity. While this wine is drinking beautifully now, the best is yet to come, and we recommend patience allowing this wine to age.
