Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2018
This Chardonnay will pair beautifully with grilled halibut in lemon butter, roasted herb chicken, pasta alfredo, chicken tikka masala and blue cheese or Bleu d'Auvergne.
Wine Enthusiast: "This dramatic wine offers a tantalizing bread-dough aroma that leads to bold flavors of toasted oak, baked apple, nutmeg and butter. Medium in body, it's wrapped in a smooth texture that also retains a tang of crisp acidity for good balance." Jul 2021
Winery: "Carpe Diem Chardonnay is produced in Northern California‘s Anderson Valley. Over the years, this region has gained the reputation of an ideal terroir to grow Chardonnay for still wines. Grapes for the Carpe Diem Chardonnay are selected exclusively from the best vineyards in Northern California‘s cool Anderson Valley. This fog-shrouded region not far from Mendocino Coast and the Pacific Ocean provides ideal growing conditions for these delicate grapes.
Vinified under the meticulous supervision of Domaine Anderson‘s winemaker Darrin Low, Carpe Diem‘s philosophy is to offer the best of two worlds: the richness of California fruit and the elegance of a French wine. Delicate and fresh aromas of lemon and almond. Citrus and floral flavors, with phenolic grip and good acid providing structure, length and roundness. Umami finish, savory and light."
