Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Karia Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
This graceful Chardonnay has inviting aromas of pear, white peach and honeysuckle. Medium bodied, this wine has a lovely texture and delicate ripe fruit notes with hints of minerality and lemon zest on the finish. Pair with grilled chicken with lemon aioli, grilled salmon with a cucumber, tomato and fresh dill salsa or roast chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta cheese.
This has inviting wafts of spicy ginger, nutmeg and clove from the beginning, and then notes of oak that follow through with flavors of Asian pear and lemon. The acidity is moderate and the body full and concentrated, with a lasting note of butter.
