Hundred Knot Khoai Chardonnay 2019
Crafted from the storied 'Old Wente Clone' grown at the acclaimed Durell Vineyard, this wine radiates pristine notes of Meyer lemon, Golden Delicious apple, and stone fruit. Hints of roasted cashew, blanched almond, and flaky croissant complicate delicate wafts of fresh white floral tones. Baking spices expose a kiss of French oak while stony minerality provides reflections of world-class coastal terroir. It’s clean and bright yet polished on the palate, bridging traditionally round and crisp styles– proving Burgundian-style white wine can be made in California.
A dream with seafood– Any fish or poultry in a basic cream or coconut cream sauce. Try a blond miso glaze with saffron rice, or just massaman curry.
