Alias Chardonnay has been consistently delicious every vintage because our Mendocino and Monterey growers are dedicated to farming sustainable, exceptional fruit.
This 2013 vintage is no exception, and Mother Nature helped make it another great growing season. Great aromas the minute it goes into the glass. Super balance between 50% malolactic fermentation and a kiss of French oak that keeps the spotlight on the great fruit.
Our Chardonnay makes an impression the minute you
bring the glass to your nose. Lemons, peaches, banana, tropical fruits, creaminess, a hint of coconut and vanilla oak. On the palate great citrus and tropical fruit characters come together in a creamy, crisp, lushness. There is just enough oak to give it a touch of toasted bread and
vanilla. There is just enough malolactic to give the wine a rich creamy texture, which balances wonderfully with the acidity. This is a great example of great fruit = great wine.
