Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Sonoma 2013

Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay Sonoma 2013

Sku: 026576

The 2011 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay from Sonoma County has superior lots of wine from our vineyards in Alexander, Russian River, Carneros and Dry Creek Valleys. This full-bodied Chardonnay boasts delicious aromas of baked apple, marshmallow, pear, citrus and a hint of graham cracker, perfectly balanced by flavors of Fuji apple, lemon, vanilla and lingering, creamy toasted oak notes.

Wine maker notes
Over 60 individual Chardonnay lots are either whole-cluster pressed or gently destemmed, crushed, pressed, then cold settled for two days in stainless steel tanks before moving to barrels for fermentation. Aged separately in French oak, the wine completes 90 percent malolactic fermentation, then is sur lie aged and stirred every two weeks until blending.

Food pairing
This versatile, full-bodied Chardonnay pairs perfectly with seafood, poultry, white meats, and dishes with cream sauces. Try preparations that include citrus, butter, cream, cheese, bacon, roasted garlic, mustard, nutmeg, thyme, basil, or toasted nuts.
