Beautiful fruit, with hints of taught minerality make this Grgich Hills Chardonnay mightily food friendly. We're thinking brunch and creamy egg dishes. Or, a salad of gem lettuce, cannelini beans, capers, tuna and barely blanched haricots all tossed in a delicious basil-shallot vinaigrette. Grilled salmon with roasted baby fingerlings may just inspire applause... What are you thinking winelovers?

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chardonnay bursts from the glass with intense scents of white peaches, lemon curd, fresh grapefruit and lime blossoms with hints of sea spray and toasted almonds. The medium-bodied palate is wonderfully crisp and intense, with bags of citrus fruit and a satiny texture to counter all that vivacity, finishing long and minerally. Drink date: 2020-2025." Nov 2020

Winery: "Miljenko “Mike” Grgich has been called “The King of Chardonnay” since the winery began in 1977, and you can taste why in this classically-styled wine. We did not allow the Chardonnay to undergo malolactic fermentation, preserving its natural acidity. The wine displays ripe peach, mango and tropical flavors, with a note of minerality. Enjoy with fresh seafood, roasted chicken, grilled pork, and creamy cheeses."
