Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay 2012


SKU 14308


The 2012 Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay has subtle tropical and citrus aromas with pineapple, stonefruit and apple flavors. Oak and vanilla balance out the flavors on the palate. Nicely balanced with weight on the mid-palate leading into a crisp, fresh finish. Try our Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay with crab and lobster, shrimp, fried calamari, and grilled salmon. It also pairs well with Cow's milk cheeses such as mild cheddar, Comte, Gruyere, Brie and Camembert or triple crème.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection! At first, there's a slight green herb funkiness of sharp dill on the nose of this single-vineyard offering from the Jackson Family-owned Cambria brand, where Santa Maria native Denise Shurtleff has made the wine since 1999. Once sipped, that evolves into a nice smokiness that sits atop tart green apple and Asian pear.

Wine AdvocateLeading off the three Chardonnay's, the 2012 Katherine's Vineyard offers beautiful flint-like minerality to go with stone fruits, white flowers, vanilla curd and brioche on the nose. Medium-bodied, tight, fresh and elegant, it's a superb value to enjoy over the coming couple of years.
