2004 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

This vintage is the first Chardonnay produced under winemaker Tina Mitchell. Her talent for crafting balance and intensity are readily apparent in the crisp aromas of Golden Delicious apples paired with the satisfying richness of rice pudding. The fruit was sourced from high Atlas Peak in Napa Valley, as well as the cool and foggy Carneros region. The balance of this wine makes it a supple pairing with everything from summer seafood salads to even richer dishes such as lemon risotto.
