2011 Folie à Deux Chardonnay

Folie-a-Deux-ChardonnayThe fruit for this Chardonnay is selected from the best vineyards in the Russian River Valley. Once harvested, the juice is fermented almost entirely in French oak barrels to add complexity and develop the rich fruit flavors. The wine is aged in these barrels for six months to preserve the wine’s vibrant fruit character.

From the winemaker – “The Folie à Deux 2012 Chardonnay is rich and seductive. Its complex aromas of warm shortbread, cinnamon, pear and melon overtones touch the nose, while flavors of fuji apple, tangerine, and pineapple citrus rest on the palate. Lingering hints of vanilla are present in the finish. This wine is full-bodied with depths of fruit from the partial malolactic fermentation, creating creamy texture and vibrant acidity.”

For a great food pairing, serve this wine with poached salmon or pan seared scallops.

2009 Chalone Vineyard Chardonnay

While the grapes for Chalone Vineyard Estate come from their high mountain estate, the grapes for the Monterey County wines come from distinct vineyards in the 75-mile long Salinas Valley, which begins in Monterey Bay and runs southeastward. Ancient volcanoes, active faults and tectonic plate movement created the Santa Lucia and Gavilan Mountain ranges, which flank the valley. The mountains form a wind tunnel, drawing cool ocean breezes off the Pacific Ocean into the valley. The cool air causes the vines to shut down and delays ripening of the grapes, leading to a longer growing season and hang time that results in intense fruit flavors. Soils in the valley are varied and include compositions of gravelly loam, sand, decomposed granite and limestone. This combination of well-drained soils, early morning fog, warm afternoon sun and cool ocean air make the region ideal.

From the Wine Maker – “In our Chardonnay, bright, fruit-focused flavors keep cadence with sweet essence of oak. Baked pear, Braeburn apple and sweet tangerine are accented by wafts of floral and nutmeg. Well-balanced, the fruit remains bright and crisp, complemented by just enough oak to lend structure and complexity.”

This wine’s versatility makes it pleasant for sipping as well as a perfect complement to sautéed scallops or stuffed chicken breast.

2009 Bodega Tamari Reserva Torrontés

“Bodega TAMARI,” in the Huarpe language of the indigenous people of the Mendoza region, means to do everything with passion. Bodega TAMARI is a wine that you can get passionate about.

From the Wine Maker – “Tamari Torrontés is a white wine that comes from the Fatima Valley in La Rioja, Argentina. Here, the climate is well-balanced between warm daytime temperatures and cool nighttime temperatures bringing out the finest qualities of the Torrontés varietal. The vineyard is at an altitude of 1,000 meters and contains medium deepness, sandy soil with good drainage. Tamari 2009 Torrontés is an intense white wine with an aroma of roses, tangerines, and tropical fruit along with notes of hazelnut, vanilla and cinnamon.”

Try this fruity and floral wine with semi ripe cheeses or seafood like trout, sea bass, swordfish, oysters, scallops or crab. It’s also a great food match for meats like chicken, veal, partridge, turkey as well as cold meats like salami and ham. Anything made from corn with spices and herbs such as basil, curry and mustard will also be perfect for Tamari Torrontés.

Seven Daughters Winemaker’s White Blend

We believe there is an art to blending the distinctively different together. At Seven Daughters, we view the winemaking process as a rare opportunity to combine the skills of scientists with the souls of artists. The goal of wine blending is to produce a perfect, unified balance, incorporating different flavor profiles into a single wine greater than the sum of its parts.  And we’re not afraid to mix it up seven ways. This non-vintage white blend is made up of French Colombard, Chardonnay, Riesling, Symphony, Orange Muscat, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc.

From the Wine Maker – “The deep aromas in this wine feature notes of orange blossom, tangerine and melon with a flirtatious hint of apricot and lychee. This sultry, balanced wine opens with the fresh flavors of lychee and mandarin oranges. The vibrant citrus influence continues on the palate and the presence of Gewürztraminer complements the wine with a closing note of spice.”

This wine pairs deliciously with fruit salad, sushi, white fish (snapper, grouper, scallops), as well as Cantonese, Thai, and Latin cuisines.
