Baileyana Chardonnay

Baileyana Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: This delightfully rich Chardonnay is a masterful blend of wine from grapes from two outstanding appellations, the Edna Valley, in San Luis Obispo County, and the Arroyo Seco region of Monterey County. Bright fruit flavors with citrus and pear undertones round out this elegant and complex wine.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
