Chatham Vineyards on 2016 Church Creek Chardonnay ~ Steel Fermented

2016 Church Creek Chardonnay ~ Steel Fermented

100% Unoaked Chardonnay (French Dijon Clones 75, 76, 95 and CA Clone 4)

Grown in well-drained, sandy loam bojac mundane soil, with a band of clay and high minerality content with ancient shell. About 35 million years ago, a meteor slammed into the earth at a location that is now the southern tip of the Eastern Shore, displacing much of the soil and fragmenting the shell and mineralogy. Notes of honeysuckle, pineapple, and mineral elements on the nose, the palette is pristine, with ripe, sweet stone fruit tangerine acidity, and just a hint of grapefruit. This is a pure expression of the varietal and Eastern Shore terroir.

Pairing: Oysters, Clams, and Seafood Dishes
