Bright, forward aromas of guava and tropical fruit are complemented by subtle hints of orange blossom and sweet vanilla. The palate is full bodied and lush with notes of pineapple, mandarin and lemon rind that integrate wonderfully with the natural acidity and subtle oak. Drinking wonderfully right now, this wine should continue to develop complexity for some time. This Chardonnay pairs well with a wide range of dishes, and also ages beautifully. Enjoy All the fruit for this 100% Chardonnay was hand harvested at night, ensuring it arrived at our Rutherford wine cellar in pristine condition. A long, cold barrel fermentation (48° F) in 100% American oak with no malolactic highlights ZD’s signature style of producing rich, yet balanced fruit-driven Chardonnays.
