Vineyard Notes
2017 brought recovery from years of drought as the season began with welcome rainfall that refilled reserviors and rejuvenated soils. A mild spring was followed by a heat wave in late August and early September, which marked the start of harvest right on schedule.
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 tropical aromas like guava and passion fruit open our chardonnay and finish with complexity in wet stone and graphite. As the wine washes over the palate, white pineapple, lemon curd, and touches of vanilla bean create the striking nature of this wine. A smooth finish with bright acidity make the 2017 the most luscious vintage yet.
Food Pairing Notes
We recommend grilling large scallops with lime and salt next to seasoned vegetables from the Farmer’s Market or harvested from your garden to pair with Perla.
