2002 Palmaz Vineyards Chardonnay "Amalia"

This inaugural Chardonnay release was made from fruit sourced in the Russian River Valley, known for its sunny warm weather, which resulted in a ripe, exuberant fruit character. Aromas of mirabelle plum, warm lemons and mango carry through to the palate with bright acidity and a notably enlivening finish. Initially produced as a family-only vintage, this charming little Chardonnay eventually took its place as a permanent feature in the Palmaz wine portfolio. The crisp style of this wine balances with rich fish dishes such as sole meunière and shrimp quenelles in cream sauce.
