Landmark Vineyards

2005 Overlook Chardonnay
Sonoma Valley

The 22 separate vineyards that comprise this year's Overlook include such distinguished growers as Sangiacomo, Bien Nacido, Martinelli and Lorenzo. All the wine in the Overlook bottling is barrel fermented using indigenous yeasts that undergoes full malo-lactic fermentation. The wine is aged sur lie for nine months in Burgundian barrels and racked to tanks for blending. Six weeks prior to bottling in August of 2006, the wine received a light isinglass fining. It was bottled without filtration.

The aromas of toasted almonds, caramel and coconut are followed by crisp green apple and lemon rind flavors that convey certain minerality. The acidity and balance of the 2005 Overlook is much more Burgundian than previous offerings. This wine will pair well with seafoods and shellfish, and complement pastas with cream sauces, as well as roast chicken and pork roast with fruit.
