2012 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

This Chardonnay features a complete expression from beginning to end. It entices at first sniff with aromas of tropical fruits (pineapple, guava and papaya) that give way to deeper hints of French oak. The mouthfeel is a soft, supple embrace. This vintage marked the first year in which the winemakers used Hyde Vineyards Chardonnay; the fruit from this famed Carneros vineyard contributed the focused and refreshing finale, complete with a pronounced umami finish. Pairs well with seafood paella and shrimp tacos.
