From the cool central coast to the warmer northern valley’s, Beaulieu Vineyard California wines reflect the diverse terroir with classic varietal character.
2015 Chardonnay shows classic varietal charm, delivering the perfect combination of pear, apple and ripe tropical fruit flavors woven together with toasty oak spices. Hints of citrus and a round mouthfeel finish out the palate, evolving in layers of pineapple, red apple and vanilla. Fermenting and aging for 4 months on French, Hungarian & American Oak along with lees stirring and partial malolactic fermentation lend depth and texture to the vibrant flavors.
