It’s a smoky Chardonnay, with vanilla and hazelnut notes accenting the creamy apple pastry, lemon meringue and graham cracker flavors. This is a richer style, but stays bright and fresh thanks to juicy acidity. Pairs well with grilled veal chops with mushrooms, seared Foie Gras, sea bass with fennel purée, hard cheese like Cheddar and Gruyère, and summer vegetables such as corn and butternut squash.
