Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Gold Label Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
|Brand||Francis Ford Coppola|
The quality of Chardonnay from the Monterey harvest was exceptional. Intensely fragrant fruit with rich concentration was the hallmark of the vintage. By using malolactic fermentation and lees aging, we achieved a creamy palate that beautifully accentuates the wine's body and depth. Flavors of pineapple, citrus fruits and melon. Aromas of fig, pear, and butterscotch. Pairs well with grilled prawns, spring vegetables, soft cheeses.
Lots of dusty, toasty oak comes through in the aroma, while the flavors turn to baked, spiced apples. It's a medium-bodied wine that's highly stylized.
