This un-oaked Chardonnay blend has 30% of the French Rhone varietal Marsanne which adds aromas, flavors and textures that make this bright, crisp, minerally dry wine a remarkable and delicious change from an ordinary Chardonnay. The Marsanne overlays a pretty floral element on the bright citrus nose, and adds a savory stonefruit character to the zippy, citrusy Chardonnay fruit. It also provides a tantalizing, slightly viscous, oily texture that gives this wine a remarkable mouthfeel. A really intriguing and deliciously different yet familiar wine, it pairs extremely well with things like roast chicken or seafood pasta. Delicious!
