VineCo Original Series™ Wine Making Kit - California Chardonnay
Originating in the Burgundy region of France, in such famous appellations as Montrachet, Meursault, Poilly-Fuisse and Chablis, Chardonnay is now the most popular white wine style in the world. Chardonnay thrives in a wide range of soils and weather climates from France to Australia. Winemakers love Chardonnay because it produces such a wide range of complex, flavorful wines. From fruit forward and crisp, to lean and minerally, to hedonistic, rich, and oaky, no wine sparks as much stylistic debate as Chardonnay.
California Chardonnay offers a full spectrum of expressions, as the grape is widely grown throughout the state from the warmer climate of the Central Valley to the cool, foggy hills near the Pacific coast. Traditionally, California Chardonnay is assumed to be full-bodied with a buttery texture and prominent oak character. But more modern approaches produce examples that have little to no oak character at all and can range from bright and fruity to soft and earthy.
Our California Chardonnay has highly expressive tree fruit flavors of green apple, pear and apricot with no oak character. With an alcohol level of 12.5% this Chardonnay features a dry finish and medium body.
The VineCo Original Chardonnay is the perfect everyday wine to unwind with after work. There is something calming about a glass of this shimmering gold liquid resting on your kitchen counter while you make dinner. Or pull a cork at the next weekend BBQ and share with friends. It’s always time for Chardonnay.
