2005 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

A warm, gentle summer heavily influenced this vintage, contributing a soft mid-palate that serves as its distinct characteristic. Aromas of guava and melon balance with a rich, creamy texture. For complexity, the winemakers sourced fruit from two locations: the high and sunny elevation of Atlas Peak and, closer to sea level, the gentle plains of Carneros, where fog and sea breeze cool the vines each morning. The result is a harmony of flavor that goes nicely with such lovely dishes as seared salmon filets with red pepper coulis, and heirloom tomato and burratta salad.
