A modern Californian chardonnay in perfect harmony.
Winemaker Anders Lane, who is responsible for the Estrada Creek series, knows how to pay homage to Californian wines. He uses the American techniques in a reasoned way to create wines that are generous, and present perfect balance. In the case of this chardonnay, we recognize the ripe nose of a Californian with aromas of ripe tropical fruits (pineapple, passion fruit ) and rich butter. We feel the effect of the wood, but without exaggeration, giving out notes of almonds and coconut. On the palate, one word describes this wine : balance. The wine is well built with a very present acidity, the roundness of chardonnay, the added structure from maturation in oak and an aromatic structure that reminds us of the nose. A true weekend wine, it is ideal to drink on its own or to pair with a simple meal, like BBQ style chicken or a bold pasta dish.
