Tasting Notes

The 2007 Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay displays elegant balance in its array of bright fruit and rich, creamy aromas and flavors. Fresh pear and ripe apple character, lightly accented with white floral and tropical fruit notes, mingle with vanilla and oak spices in the enticing aromas. The flavors mirror the aromas, picking up notes of melon, and then culminate in a toasty oak finish.

Food Pairings

This Chardonnay’s crispness makes it a perfect foil for barbecued shrimp topped with mango, citrus, red onion and cilantro salsa. It has the richness to match roast chicken served with a wild mushroom sauce and is delicious served simply with Brie cheese and fresh fruit.
