Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2011 Late Harvest Chardonnay

A Napa Valley interpretation of the Botrytis affected wines of Bordeaux. Rather than the traditional Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc we find Chardonnay from the Truchard vineyard of the Carneros region. Every grape has been hand-selected to create this intensely flavored and complex golden-hued wine. Flavors of ripe citrus fruit, bosc pair and white peach with a fresh and lively acidity to temper the sweetness and rich body. Serve with equally high acid, citrus desserts or foie gras to truly appreciate this luxurious wine. Sadly, only produced in vintages where conditions are suitable for the development of Noble Rot.
