Raymond Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve Selection 2012

Raymond Vineyards Chardonnay Reserve Selection 750ML 2012    
Sku: 51503

100% Chardonnay that opens with delicate floral aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom followed by lemon, lime and pear notes amid toasted almond, orange zest and vanilla. A rich, full mouth feel with balanced acidity and bright pear, peach, honey, lemon and passion fruit flavors followed by a smooth vanilla finish.

Vineyard Notes
The grapes for the Napa Valley Chardonnay come from our estate vineyards in Jameson Canyon and select Napa Valley growers. The estate vineyards are planted on rolling hills at the southern end of Napa Valley. The growing conditions here are very similar to Carneros, the neighboring appellation just west of the Napa River. Winds flow through Jameson Canyon, carrying in the cooling influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean, providing a long, cool growing season that enhances the intensity of the Chardonnay flavors.

Production Notes
Using no malolactic fermentation and moderate oak influence, our Napa Valley Chardonnay is made in a style that focuses on the inherent qualities of this varietal. To preserve the unique Chardonnay flavors and aromas of grapes grown in this region, this wine was cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. We aged 50% of the Chardonnay for two months in new Allier French oak barrels, selected for their tight grain that delicately restrains the oak flavors. This gives the wine a touch of oak and creamy vanilla flavors without overwhelming the natural fruit flavors.

Food Pairing
A versatile, wine that pairs well with roast lemon and tarragon chicken, grilled salmon, halibut or swordfish, sautéed Petrale sole, seafood risotto, steamed lobster, oysters Rockefeller, sushi and spicy seafood paella, as well as lemon garlic rock shrimp Linguini or lighter soups, salads and stews. Also a perfect choice with a variety of Thai, Mandarin and Vietnamese cuisine.
