White Wine by Hearst Ranch from Central Coast, California. The 2016 Glacier Ridge Chardonnay is a modern wine with an abundance of old-world charm. It was fermented and aged in just enough oak to lend depth, while still highlighting this wine’s beautiful varietal character. Enticing aromas of freshly cut green apple, white nectarine, and vanilla bean Creme Br lee all can be found in the glass. The cool climate acidity is evident throughout the palate, making this wine a versatile pairing partner with many dishes. The wine aged in oak had its lees stirred weekly to add richness and length to the mid-palate. The proximity of the vineyards to the ocean creates a faint but refreshing minerality.
