Folie a Deux Chardonnay 2014


SKU 27661


The Folie à Deux 2014 Chardonnay is opulent and alluring. Indicative of its cool climate origins, this wine has a bright acidity beneath notes of toasted pear strudel, apple, apricot and vanilla-all framed by a richly textured palate. This wine is medium-bodied with a memorable crispness. The fruit for this Chardonnay was selected from nine premier vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley. Following harvest, the grapes were fermented in a combination of French, American and Hungarian oak barrels to add complexity and showcase the variety's rich fruit flavors. The wine was then aged in oak for six months to preserve its rich barrel notes of vanilla, caramel and spice. Food Pairing: For an excellent pairing, serve the 2014 Folie à Deux Chardonnay with baked salmon topped with herbs of dill and fresh-squeezed lemon, or try it alongside white mushroom truffle pasta.

Wine EnthusiastDespite this wine's initial big-barrel influence, it becomes a complex, satisfying mix of salted caramel, melon and ginger that remains relatively light bodied and able to display minerality. At an attractive price, it's worth considering for midweek meals and larger gatherings.
