2019 Palmer Chardonnay

2019 Palmer Chardonnay

Just around the corner from our Pompadour vineyard is a ranch belonging to Ron Palmer. Ron planted Wente clone Chardonnay in 1983 and the fruit is as good now as it was then. So good in fact, that when André Tschelistcheff purchased the grapes back in the late 80’s he declared them his best Chardonnay. We are proud to make a wine with grapes from Ron’s historic and pedigreed site.

Tasting Notes

There is purity to this wine that asserts itself as the first delicate notes rise from the glass. Citrus elements in the theme of lemon chiffon, along with the delicate fragrance of honeysuckle and spring flowers. The palate offers a sense of minerality with river rock and notes of pea shoots and grilled pineapple.

Food Pairings

The bright acidity of this wine is a great match for risotto with fresh herbs, or grilled oysters with lemon, dishes that provide a creamy and bright counterpoint to this balanced and classic Chardonnay.
