“Grgich's 97 point Classic California Chardonnay”

"Stunningly complex... A classy wine." Decanter

By David Gettenberg

Standing Up To The Grill And More!

Truth be told, if I am reaching for a Chardonnay on any given night, it is likely a white Burgundy.  They are some of the finest Chardonnay's on the planet.  

However, the 2016 Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay is a head-turner.  Rich and balanced it is one of the best expressions of this classic California Chardonnay that we have tasted in a while.  

And, with grilling season upon us, this Chardonnay stands up perfectly to the smoky accents from the grill.

"Stunningly complex with aromas of smoke, brioche, toast and a little flintiness. This is beautifully balanced with a blend of sweet apple, oyster shell and gentle sweet oak. A classy wine with such potential to develop further."  Decanter

What is especially nice about this particular Grgich vintage is that you get classic butter flavors, but they are subtle and not overpowering.  The balance and complexity of fruit really expresses itself in this delicious vintage.  

From grilled salmon to grilled vegetables, it is even a perfect match for grilled lobster tails.

Enjoy!
