On the nose, baked pear, NECTARINE, toasted hazelnut and CRÈME BRÛLÉE. On the palate, yellow apple and plum, SHORTBREAD and nougat. Richly textured and concentrated with BALANCED ACIDITY and a subtle toast.
Pair this with all the classics — rich seafood, creamy pasta, and gooey cheeses. Standouts such as scallop scampi, brown sugar-crusted salmon and chicken Marbella are magnificent pairings.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
“The 2015 Chardonnay Nine Barrels simply sings of honeysuckle, lime blossoms and mandarin peel with a core of pineapple, nectarines, cashews and brioche. Full, rich, concentrated and featuring tons of spice and floral layers, it delivers layer upon layer of bold flavors and a very long finish.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown (October, 2018)
