2016 Materra Reserve Southworth Chardonnay
100% Chardonnay. Our inaugural vintage of the Southworth Chardonnay Reserve was a huge success. Due to its limited production, this will continue to be a club exclusive wine. Notes of citrus, gardenia blossom, hint of toast, honeysuckle, apricot, caramel, vanilla bean husk and keylime unfold and transform into a medley bouquet. Medium bodied and nicely weighted, the palate draws on a refreshing acidity and minerality with flavors of caramel green apple, tangerine, lime, lemon pound cake, wet stone and pear. With only 2-3% going through malolactic fermentation, our reserve chardonnay is bright with a subtle roundedness characteristc. Pair with butternut squash soup, spicy crab cakes, coconut prawns, halibut with lemon caper and soft cheeses.
