Chardonnay on Sale!
Chardonnay continues to be the world's most popular white wine, so we here at Sunset Corners are always on the lookout for great chardonnay at an even greater price. Today we hit the jackpot with a wine from a lesser known region of California; Edna Valley.
The eight mile long Edna Valley, near San Luis Obispo, California, is known for its distinctive topography and climate. With frequent fog and a mild climate, the region has one of the longest growing seasons in California. While the inland areas heat up during the day, the summer fog and afternoon ocean winds act as a natural cooling system keeping the valley's temperatures far below the averages found in some of the more inland growing regions of the Central Coast. These climatic conditions are ideal for growing concentrated Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Smooth and lush this is typical old-style California chardonnay at its finest. Rich and leesy the wine is made from four different clones of Chardonnay and aged on the lees for nine months. On the nose, there is a bright bouquet of citrus evolving into flavors of pear, honey and apple notes. This steely chardonnay has a creamy texture which is completed by a long rich finish. The wine is refined and elegant and has an aging potential that will develop slowly.
