A rich and buttery Chardonnay from the Foley Johnson family’s home ranch in Carneros. Full bodied and velvety, with ripe and juicy tropical fruit notes with plenty of buttery notes reminiscent of warm croissants with melted freshly churned French butter! Impeccably made and in very small quantities, this drinks well above the price.
Pairing: Foley Johnson pairs well with shellfish, chicken, soft cheeses, and vegetable risotto.
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.
