Gloria Ferrer Etesian Chardonnay
Created with inspiration from the Mediterranean. The Etesian wind tempers the warm days of summer in the eastern Mediterranean. Similarly, in California the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean cools the vineyards of Sonoma, promoting superb natural balance and well-developed flavors in our Chardonnay grapes.
The grapes are hand-harvested in small picking bins as not to be crushed. They were then whole-cluster pressed and fermented in 100% stainless steel at 55F to 60F to retain freshness.
This chardonnay smells of peach with a touch of Meyer lemon.
On the mouth, the wine is crisp and bright with no oak. Flavors of pineapple, Asian pear and green apple continue on into a bright and long finish.
Pair with grilled shrimp cocktail, pasta Alfredo, or seared scallops.
