Description

The Reinke Vineyard lies in Napa Valley’s Carneros district, one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world for cultivating thin-skinned Chardonnay grapes. The cooling breezes off the San Pablo Bay allow the grapes a longer hang time in which to develop flavor and intensity, without sacrificing acidity and true balance.

This Chardonnay has the structure to pair beautifully with a variety of fresh, spicy, and acidic foods. Try this wine with Gazpacho made from vine-ripened tomatoes, cucumber, red bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno, and garlic clove. This chilled soup can be garnished with garlic croutons, chopped cilantro, and a wedge of avocado. The intense flavor profile of the aforementioned ingredients will bring forward the magnificent fruit of this Chardonnay and highlight the wine’s long fruit finish.
