2008 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

By carefully sourcing fruit from the Carneros and Atlas Peak regions in Napa Valley, this wine achieved a balance between vibrant and soft. The diverse terrain and climate of those locations brings a complex harmony of aromas, ranging from tropical papaya to grapefruit. On the palate, the combined effect allows this wine to be paired with a wide array of foods, including rich pasta dishes such as ricotta ravioli in lemon cream sauce, or as an opener with a cream-based sweet summer corn bisque.
