Vino Veritas: Cambria, Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay, 2007

 

Cambria Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay

2007 Santa Maria Valley California

The first thing that hits you about Cambria’s Katherine’s Vineyard Chardonnay is the smell. Yes there are citrus and tropical fruit aromas but even before you taste the wine you can tell it is going to have a creamy, butteryness. Indeed, wine mouthfeel is smooth, rich and creamy, malolatic fermentation anyone, bringing out the flavors of pear, apple, apricot, vanilla and white peach with a solid yet subtle and balanced undertone of wood and just enough acid to maintain a bright finish.

This wine would be excellent paired with herb-roasted poultry or lightly smoked mild cheeses.
