2006 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

A cool, wet spring brought great acidity and bracing qualities to this Chardonnay. As with the previous vintage, balance was the focus, with the fruit sourced from both sunny Atlas Peak and temperate Carneros locations. The cool barrel fermentation also contributed a luscious mid-palate; aromas of apricot and Gala apple balance the wine nicely. This vintage goes well with composed seafood dishes such as bouillabaisse, or simply paired with smoked salmon.
