2018 Bella Terra Chardonnay
- Availability: In Stock
93pts Carl’s Wine Club: "This is an absolute Rockstar Chardonnay with fruits coming exclusively from the very pristine Bella Terra Vineyard. The nose absolutely explodes with ripe pineapple, blood orange, caramel and whipped cream. The front-palate is loaded with tropical fruits and apricot before the oak takes place at the perfect moment on the mid-palate. At this point I'm wondering if there is a partial wild ferment with this wine. The texture is so beautifully creamy and the complexity is "off the chart". The finish is long, spicy, complex and absolutely wonderful. The 2017 won a big award at the Chardonnay du Monde competition but the 2018 is superior, in my opinion! Well done..."
Tasting Notes: Our 2018 Chardonnay has an initial buttery aroma that is followed by layers of tropical fruit notes, such as banana, baked bread and vanilla. This full bodied wine has a balanced acidity, with notes of caramel candy apple and butter on the palate, ending off with a dry finish.
This wine pairs perfectly with Carbonara spaghetti or Portuguese custard tart
