Along California’s weathered Central Coast we’ve found a special Chardonnay to offer — the Melville 2012 Chardonnay from Verna’s Vineyard in Santa Barbara. This vibrant wine is made from grapes weathered by ocean breezes and warm summer days. The fruit is harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed, cold settled overnight and transferred by gravity to neutral barrels for fermentation (5 to 20 year old French Oak).

Melville Central Coast – Estate Verna is bright gold in color, aromas of almonds, lemon curd and orange blossom spring from the glass… yet the texture is smooth and tender on the palate with a streak of acidity to maintain the wine’s focus and drive.

This is not your traditional creamy buttered Chardonnay or one with a strong Oak influence. It is more crisp and acidic… with a subtle smooth finish with overtones of orange zest, honeydew melon, dried stone fruits and lemon. It would be refreshing on a spring or summer day and compliment chicken and fish exceptionally well.
