The Seeker Chardonnay 2012

The wine has light citrus and floral aromas, and ripe pineapple, golden apple and Anjou pear flavors balanced by citrus notes and a smooth, creamy finish. This harmonious wine is perfect for smoked chicken salad, four-cheese pizza, fried delights, spicy foods, devious dalliances and musical mayhem. Grapes were harvested during cooler night and morning hours to highlight the crisp citrus flavors. After crushing, the must was fermented for up to 12 days at cool temperatures, around 15°C (60°F), in stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation, adding a silkiness and body to the wine. Gewürztraminer was blended in to add floral notes and richness. [+]
