Type: White Wine Grape(s): Chardonnay Wine Region: California, USA
Avalon CHARD is crafted with grapes grown in Northern California including the Delta region. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape in the area, which gives the varietal a highly successful advantage.
As temperatures rise in the California's interior valley, cool sea breezes are pulled directly through the San Francisco Bay creating a cooling effect that has allowed exceptional wine grapes to thrive in the region for more than a century.
Elegant and well-balanced, with aromas of orange blossom, Golden Delicious apple, guava with hints of vanilla and baking spices. These lovely characteristics flow through to the palate leading to a crisp and refreshing finish.
Suggested food and wine pairing: Mild cheese, salads, grilled shrimp and fish tacos.
