Chalone Estate Chardonnay is crisp and refreshing with a beautiful golden hue. It opens up with nuances of stone fruit, wet rock, and a hint of oak. This Burgundian style Chardonnay boasts a unique minerality and exceptional complexity derived from mature vineyards coupled with ancient limestone that runs through the Chalone AVA.
Pair this Chardonnay with creamy lobster mac and cheese topped with crunchy, golden bread crumbs.
