2006 ZD Wines Reserve Chardonnay, Napa Valley -- ZD Wines Shopping Cart
-- available in 1.5L (magnum) bottles
The cool, foggy Carneros mornings provide an ideal climate for growing Chardonnay. The fruit from our dry-farmed, organically certified deLeuze Family Vineyard is the backbone for our Reserve Chardonnay. Careful winemaking techniques, such as 100% barrel fermentation in American Oak barrels, no malo-lactic fermentation and extended barrel aging, all contributed to this unique wine.. This 2006 Reserve Chardonnay offers a wonderful combination of citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma (pineapple/lemon/orange blossom), and pleasantly surprises you with hints of pear, floral and spicy toast notes lingering in the background. On the palate, the fruit remains ever present from start to finish with a rich, creamy mid-palate balanced beautifully with bright natural acidity. The sweet, vanillin oak is well integrated and leads to a long, rich finish. This Reserve Chardonnay will complement a wide range of foods; especially delicious with Lobster and Dungenous Crab. This wine will age gracefully for many years. Enjoy!!
