Landmark Chardonnay Overlook 2015
From its canary-yellow hue to its nose of honey-butter, chamomile and melon, this is a truly "landmark' vintage for this wine. Forty-two individual lots were sourced from 24 vineyards throughout Sonoma County, aged for ten months in Frenchj oak (25% new) and fermented with native yeasts for complexity. 2015 was the winery's earliest harvest in its 25-year history. On the palate, the graceful herbal notes of lemon verbena are soft and floral, with honey-nutty notes of lanolin alongside. Texturally creamy, with a cookie-butter quality, the wines is round and opulent with a toasty finish.
The 2015 Overlook Chardonnay is mouth-filling, but refreshingly crisp and balanced and makes a perfect pairing to a fettucine alfredo with grated lemon zest and a twist of cracked pepper, or with a simple grilled swordfish fillet with basil lemon butter.
