2017, The Paring ChardonnayUdsolgt
THE PARING CHARDONNAY 2017:
Invigorating combination of ripe and silky fruit alongside a refreshing backbone of vibrant acidity. An inviting and delectable chardonnay that offers something for everyone.
MATT DEES’ WINEMAKER NOTES:
Low yields and cool days created a blend that is both bold and rich as well as chiseled and steely. Citrus and green melon and hints of baking spice. Ready to pop and pour, it shines immediately out of the bottle.
“The 2017 Chardonnay is another terrific vintage for this cuvée and it's a year in year out value. Ripe apple, green citrus, and hints of spice all define the bouquet, and it's rounded and supple, with plenty of fruit as well as balance. It's a no brainer purchase as well as a great introduction to the wines from The Hilt and Jonata.”

“The Paring's 2017 Chardonnay is a pretty, open-knit wine to drink now and over the next few years. Tangerine, butter and light tropical notes give this Santa Barbara Chardonnay lovely nuance and character, especially within its peer group.”
