A favorite of both sommeliers and casual wine drinkers, Butternut Chardonnay is a unique white wine with a creamy, luxe texture. If you love white wines with richness and depth, give Butternut a try. It's like your Mother's Chardonnay, only better.
We have sourced grapes from throughout California to create a luscious, round Chardonnay. 2017 started off with record rainfall leading to early, robust growth on the vines. Then the summer started off average but quickly changed to one of the hottest summers on record! The vines and grapes were tested, but with modern farming techniques, the vines were aided and protected. In the end, due to ample water and sunlight, 2017 produced another excellent vintage!
Aromas of peach, hazelnut and spiced candied apple breeze around the brim. Round, creamy notes of fig, butterscotch and sweet oak dance on the palate.
This Butternut Chardonnay is amazing with wild rice with toasted nuts and dried currants or crab cakes and risotto with spring vegetables.
