A rich and buttery Chardonnay from the Foley Johnson family’s home ranch in Carneros. Full velvety body, with ripe tropical fruit notes, showing plenty of richness reminiscent of warm croissants with melted freshly churned French butter! Impeccably made in very small quantities, this wine drinks very well over delivering for the price.
Pairings: shellfish in Butter Broth, lemon caper chicken, soft cheeses, vegetable risotto and white truffles
Most California producers focus on the noble grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc) for their wines, but there is also a lot of experimentation happening with other, lesser-known varieties. California is far and away the largest wine producing state in the USA and it produces a wide range of quality wine.
