2018 Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay 'Francine's Vineyard' Mendocino County, California (750ml)
One of our "go-to" white wines for casual week-day meals or when you are expecting a crowd ~ not an option right now, we know . . .
Notes from the producer ~ One of our Mendocino grape growers refers to the area where his vineyards grow as Russian River North. Much of what we source in Mendocino is along the river and the growing conditions are very similar to the cool vineyards in Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley. Add a touch of Chardonnay grapes from Northern Monterey County and the resulting wine is full of fruit flavor with a firm structure. The harvest of 2018 was abundant and beautiful and our Unoaked Chardonnay from this vintage is generous with lovely aromatics and flavor. I knew at my first taste that this was a year of greatness for Chardonnay, the queen of grape varietals! Because of its juicy, bright, and fruit forward character, you can try it with many creative pairings.”
