ZD Wines Chardonnay 2014
The 2014 Chardonnay highlights our commitment to artfully blending for richness, intensity and balance from long-term vineyard partners in Carneros, Monterey, and Santa Barbara counties. The wine is aged for 10 months in 100% American oak barrels which contributes to the richness and complexity of the wine. Aromas of juicy pineapple, guava and lemon zest mingle with notes of sweet vanilla and honeysuckle. The palate is round, full bodied and boasts a core of bright tropical fruit that is balanced beautifully by natural acidity.
This wine tastes heavy and rounded, with whiffs of petroleum and peppermint on the entry that settle down over time. With ripe fruit and oak at its core, it's a wine for fans of a more generous style.
