Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay, 2018

Produced by Ranch Road Vineyards

Our Sonoma County Chardonnay is elegant and well-balanced. Unlike many rich and oaky California Chardonnays, our wine is lightly oaked and bright. With aromas of crisp pear, the Chardonnay balances ripe apple and honeysuckle with a silky and sweet density. We recommend pairing this Chardonnay with a salmon or lemon chicken, but any fish, poultry or hearty pasta dish will be a perfect accompaniment.
