Sagebrush Chardonnay 2007, Alder Springs Vineyard, Mendocino County Print

This Chablis-styled chardonnay made from cool climate-harvested grapes combines the best of new world fruit with old-world technique. Hints of apricot, white peach, and honeysuckle are complimented by balanced acidity and a long-lasting finish. Sur-lie aging provides an outstanding complexity to this full-bodied wine. Crispness and a mineral backbone predominate. It pairs perfectly with shellfish, risotto with white truffles, and robust cheeses.
