2013 Graef, Chardonnay

2013 Graef, Chardonnay
Volume: 750 mL , Alcohol: 14.5%
Many California Chards are aged in oak barrels, giving it that smoky toasted flavor, but this one is unoaked, meaning it has a much more crisp, clean taste. This wine tastes like herbs and lemon curd spread thin on a caramel rice cake. It’s like drinking lukewarm green tea and eating gritty, stone ground oatmeal cookies.

More about this wine from Yountville, CA
This Napa Valley white is different from what you may think of as the typical Chardonnay - and it all comes down to oak. Many a California Chard is aged in oak barrels, giving it that smoky toasted flavor that we usually associate with this wine, but the Graef Chardonnay is _unoaked_, meaning it has a much more crisp and clean taste.

This wine tastes like herbs and lemon curd spread thin on a caramel rice cake. It’s like drinking lukewarm green tea and eating gritty, stone ground oatmeal cookies. Brightly hued, luminous and glowing in the glass surrounded by aromas of granulated sunshine and canned pineapple chunks.
How to drink it

While...

Heading to the beach on an overcast, June-gloom morning.

Listening to...

May I Have This Dance ft. Chance the Rapper - Francis and the Lights

Eating...

Dates and olives can be a bit daunting, but a white with a body as sizable as this isn't afraid to get wierd.

Try it with our Carrots, Dates, and Olives with Crème Fraîche and Frico recipe.
