The Campus Oaks 2012 Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from Gnekow Family Winery’s Lodi vineyard and Collegeville vineyard (located just southeast of Stockton). This Chardonnay was barrel fermented, which gives it its rich golden color. Aromas of honeyed apple, nuts, lemon-lime, and oak spices complement the full flavored palate of silky, buttercream flavors with hints of toasted bread and oak. The Campus Oaks 2012 Chardonnay is nicely balanced, full bodied, and ends with a clean, elegant finish. Try pairing the Campus Oaks 2012 Chardonnay with poultry, creamy dishes, salmon or lobster. Gnekow Family Winery’s previous Chardonnay vintages have garnered ratings as high as 92 Points and are always impressive values. [+]
