The 2015 Materra Chardonnay captures the versatility and elegance this wine is known for. As the new vines mature year after year, the characteristics blossom and develop deep complexities that echo into the finished bottle. First impressions of lemon peel and zest along with citrus flowers, orange blossoms, toasty Brioche and honeysuckle embrace the nose. Upon the first taste, the palate is greeted with tropical undertones of papaya, pineapple and mango as well as honey, wet stone and subtle spice. The overall wine is well balanced with a very smooth finish. Oak aged for 8 months in 30% new French oak and 70% neutral with only 7% going through malolactic fermentation. This Chardonnay is versatile enough to be served year round and offers limitless food pairing options including summer salads, grilled meats, semi-soft and hard cheeses and pastry desserts.
