Estancia Reserve Monterey Chardonnay 2006
Winery: "The challenges brought to the vineyard by wind and water coax the vines to produce small clusters with intense fruit characteristics. Thus, allowing the winery to craft a richly flavored Chardonnay packed with bright citrus, ripe pear, and finishes with soft hints of oak. Appearance: Golden straw. Aroma: Touches of ripe pear, crisp apple and citrus influence the subtle notes of caramel and vanilla. Flavor: Fresh pear, a spritz of lime and a dollop of lemon custard mingle with nuances of toasty oak leading to a lingering creamy finish."
Wired For Wine: The Estancia Reserve Monterey Chadonnay is very rich, bursting with flavor while being crisp and clean, so we say bring on the seafood. Crab, white fish, lobster and scallops will make this wine sing. Salmon too. Pair them with butter or cream sauces. Crab cakes with a mustard aioli or broiled lobster with warm lemon butter for dipping will do the trick. Another favorite with this Reserve Chardonnay is seared sea scallops on a bed of creamy polenta, garnished with julienned, crisp leeks. The elegant balance of this Estancia's flavors is compatible with many spices, so the possibilities for making the perfect meal are almost endless. While you're deciding, pour a glass of this Monterey Reserve and enjoy this diva with half a dozen oysters...
