White Oak 2008 Chardonnay Napa Valley

A Gold Medal Wine Club Special Selection! Chardonnay is one of the original varietals that helped build White Oak Winery’s world-class reputation throughout the early 1990’s and this latest achievement follows an incredible legacy of 90+ Point vintages since 2001. As a brand new release, when the 2008 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sent out for review in the coming months, we are confident it will garner both the attention and accolades to match those of its popular predecessors. A classic, full bodied Chardonnay with aromas of vibrant tropical fruit and toasty oak, White Oak’s 2008 vintage was produced in the classic Burgundian style utilizing barrel fermenting and barrel aging. The incorporation of oak throughout the winemaking process is noted in its incredible depth of round, full bodied fruit flavors, and the smooth, rich texture of the wine’s mouthfeel. Flavors of citrus fruit, apple, lime and roasted nuts come through on the palate and linger on the lasting finish. A delicious Chardonnay, White Oak’s 2008 pairs beautifully with roasted chicken and creamy, white-sauced pasta dishes. [+]
