Born and raised in England, professional golfer Luke Donald has an affinity for the great white Burgundies of France. This is the inspiration behind his Luke Donald Collection Chardonnay from Carneros in the Napa Valley, a wine that reflects Luke’s passion for elegant, well-balanced Chardonnay.
A light gold color, this wine showcases aromas of caramel and apple and notes of citrus blossom with layers of honey and vanilla. Much like any white Burgundy, this Chardonnay will benefit from time in the bottle to blossom fully.
With an emphasis on crisp, clean minerality, and a restrained use of oak, this Chardonnay highlights the cooler climate and rich soils of Carneros, and is crafted in a style that pairs well with a wide variety of foods: from veal, chicken and risotto dishes, to shellfish, whitefish and even salmon.
