Vineyard Notes
Surrounded by Redwood trees and gardens, this patch of heaven in the foothills of the Sonoma Mountains is home to 40-year-old Chardonnay vines. Quality versus quantity, the rocky, gravelly soil producing around two tons per acre. The low yield creates berries with a concentrated amount of flavor.
Production Notes
Rolando’s unique method of crafting this wine results in a Burgundian-style Chardonnay. Aged 36 months using a combination of both French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, the 100% malolactic fermentation (sur lie) contributes to the creamy, texture of this wine while the time in stainless steel maintains the refreshing minerality.
Tasting Notes
Bright gold with platinum rim, this wine has aromas of crème brûleé, key lime, green apple, coconut shavings, and jasmine with a kiss of sweet oak. The silky entry, rounded texture and aromas complement mineral, wet stone and graphite notes. As the wine opens up, the flavors continue to get richer while the refreshing minerality invites you to the next sip.
Food Pairing Notes
This well structured Chardonnay pairs beautifully with scallops adorned with papaya and mango salsa or roasted chicken. Let the Perla Chardonnay inspire you to spice up movie night with some truffle-salted popcorn.
