2007 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

The warm summer and early harvest of 2007 contributed a distinct tropical characteristic to this Chardonnay. Sourced entirely from the Carneros region of Napa Valley, this wine exhibits aromas of ripe guava and pineapple (balanced with a light, creamy texture), as well as a luscious mid-palate that carries through to a focused and stimulating finish. This Chardonnay exhibits the finesse that only judicious cool-barrel aging can achieve. This vintage pairs nicely with richer seafood dishes such as seared scallops on hollandaise or lobster mousseline salad with papaya.
