About this Wine
Tin Roof Chardonnay was produced from grapes primarily grown on California’s Central Coast. Chardonnay does best in cool-climate regions where it can ripen slowly and evenly, developing rich flavors while retaining healthy levels of acidity.
Boldly flavored, smoothly textured and unusually complex, Tin Roof wines are designed to please wine lovers seeking distinctive varietal character. Our 2011 Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to preserve its bright fruit flavors, with a significant portion undergoing malolactic fermentation and sur lie aging to foster a creamier texture and richer flavors.
Our Chardonnay displays fresh apple and peach aromas with a hint of vanilla on the nose. The wine’s broad, mouth-filling palate offers notes of Fuji apple, quince and crème brulee. This Chardonnay is a fabulous accompaniment to fish and chicken dishes, game birds, pork and cream sauce pastas.
