2005 Chardonnay
Acacia Vineyard

At Acacia Vineyard our aim is to create a rich, concentrated and focused Chardonnay from our remarkable Carneros fruit. We hand harvested the fruit for our 2005 Carneros Chardonnay, then allowed three hours of skin contact to extract flavors from the skin. A brief period of aeration enabled us to extract those delicious flavors and precipitate out any tannins associated with skin contact. The result is a full-flavored Chardonnay with both concentration and elegance.

Vibrant aromas of crème brûlée, ginger, lemon curd and white peach are followed by a creamy entry which blossoms to a full, sweet, peach, nectarine and citrus mid-palate. Medium-bodied with vibrant acidity, the wine finishes long and full. Our 2005 Chardonnay is perfect with all types of seafood, fish, chicken and pork.

I've had a couple of good chardonnay's recently, and this didn't quite match up in comparison, perhaps due to unfavorable pairing.
