A companion to our José S. Ferrer Reserve Pinot Noir, this Reserve Chardonnay is a very select blend chosen specifically to showcase the excellence of our estate vineyards.

The nose is greeted with intense tropical fruit, pear and pineapple framed by light toast.  The fruit continues on into the mouth joined by crisp acidity and peach, leading into a long finish.

Try it with sautéed red snapper with a citrus reduction and crispy garden leeks. Roast pork loin with grilled pineapple will match well with the kiss of sweet oak which is prevalent in this chardonnay. Hard cheddar or aged Gouda with green apple slices will make your palette sing.

“Well-structured, with juicy richness to the Fuji apple, Bosc pear and ripe melon flavors, supported by fresh acidity. The taut finish features light buttery and pastry accents.” - Wine Spectator
