Arnold Palmer Chardonnay 2012
A fresh and zesty Chardonnay with a rich minerality and some Albariño in the blend which adds vibrant acidity. Intense and zesty on the nose with rich mineral, green apple and fresh white peach aromas. On the palate, toasty oak and marshmallow are followed by a lively mix of ripe pear, apple, citrus and honeydew flavours. The finish is lush and refreshing.
The Arnold Palmer Chardonnay is a unique blend of Chardonnay and Albariño from vineyards in cooler, maritime influenced districts of California. Chardonnay is well known for its characteristic fresh apple fruit aromas and rounded, rich flavors. Albariño is a less well known variety hailing originally from very cool Atlantic vineyards of northwest Spain. Albariño adds exotic, floral peach aromas and vibrant acidity.
