2003 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

This vintage’s fruit came from the sunny Russian River Valley in northern Sonoma, and contributed to the wine’s tropical characteristics. The wine, barrel-aged at room temperature because the Chardonnay tunnel had not yet been completed, offers aromas of luscious mangos, pineapple and a hint of orange blossom. This warm-barrel aging also contributed to the rich smooth texture and a crème brûlée finish. This Chardonnay pairs beautifully with seafood ceviche or grilled ahi tuna and pineapple tomatillo salsa.
