Folie a Deux Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
|Brand||Folie a Deux|
The Folie à Deux 2017 Chardonnay is opulent and alluring. Indicative of its cool climate origins, this wine has a bright acidity beneath notes of sweet melon, golden apple and bright tropical, perfumed pear. Flavors of ripe vanilla, mandarin, toasted marshmallow, butterscotch, banana, and citrus blossom are accompanied by a creamy mid-palate. This wine is medium-bodied, round and smooth with uplifting acidity and a balanced finish. For an excellent pairing, serve the 2017 Folie à Deux Chardonnay with baked salmon topped with herbs of dill and freshsqueezed lemon, or try it alongside white mushroom truffle pasta.
Robust on the palate, this wine opens in floral aromatics of jasmine and apple blossom. It follows flavorfully in Meyer lemon zest, tangerine and pineapple, combining firm structure with rounded approachability.
Offers a well of bright spicy and savory notes that flank the ripe apple and citrus flavors. Dried basil and honeysuckle details show on the finish. Drink now.
