Arnold Palmer Chardonnay
Blend Chardonnay 100%
Region Napa Valley, California, USA
Vineyard Arnold Palmer Chardonnay is a vibrant Chardonnay from vineyards in cooler climates of California. Chardonnay is well known for its characteristic fresh apple fruit aromas and rounded, rich flavors. Weather during the harvest provided ideal growing conditions for lush, yet perfectly balanced fruit.
Winemaking The Chardonnay grapes were whole-cluster pressed, settled for juice clarity, and then cold fermented in stainless steel. The juice then went through the traditional secondary malo-lactic fermentation and was cellar aged, a portion in oak barrels. The wine was then blended in the late spring and bottled in May.
Arnold Palmer Chardonnay has a nose that is bright and zesty, with lemongrass, golden apple, and jasmine aromas. A splash of toasty vanilla precedes a lively mix of ripe pear, apple, and citrus flavors, followed by a lush and refreshing finish.
