Toasted Head California Chardonnay 2011 Call for Price/750 ml.
Winery notes: "This brilliant, golden-straw-colored Chardonnay opens with bright and delicate aromas of pears, citrus and what can only be described as apple blossoms, followed by flavors of pear, lemon, toasty coconut and hints of peach, pineapple and cinnamon. Barrel fermentation and aging on the lees contribute a creamy mouthfeel and our hallmark toasty finish. This wine tastes great with poultry, seafood in a lemon-butter sauce, creamy pasta or an onion cream tart. Most of the fruit (55%) comes from our estate vineyards in the Dunnigan Hills, with the balance harvested from notable vineyards in Mendocino County. Located 20 miles due east of the Napa Valley, the Dunnigan Hills boast warm days that pave the way for full ripeness in our Chardonnay (and those lush fruit flavors we’re famous for), while cool breezes at night from the nearby Sacramento Delta and San Francisco Bay keep natural acidity levels high."
