“A Chardonnay Gift From Napa Valley!”

A Chardonnay Gift From Napa Valley!

By David Gettenberg

Last night I enjoyed a delicious pairing: the newly released 2014 Adele Chardonnay and grilled prawns drizzled with herbed butter and spaghetti squash. A simple Tuesday dinner never tasted so good. Truly delicious!

Seldom do you enjoy $75 fruit for 20 bucks. We can say with confidence that this is one doozy of a Chardonnay. You should kick yourself if you don't buy this wine by the case.

This is Vine Hill Road sourced fruit, which draws premier producers to the region. One of the most iconic California Chardonnay producers, Kistler, not only produces a Vine Hill cuvee, but a bird's eye view would reveal that Kistler is surround by the Vine Hill Vineyard itself!

Adele boasts apple, pear, hints of toasted butter and great acidity, which frame this smooth and full-bodied Chardonnay. Mild and well integrated oak allows the minerality to shine through. It's not often we get excited about a $20 Chardonnay, but this is a gift from the Russian River Valley.

And, just in case we minced our words and didn't stress it enough, you'll kick yourself if you don't snatch this up by the case...or more.
