The 2017 Foley Johnson Carneros Chardonnay is produced by winemaker Steve Nelson and features fruit from two vineyards in the Carneros region. Concentrated aromas offer complex notes of grilled peach, pear, buttered croissant, and vanilla, setting the stage for a rich, and full-bodied Chardonnay that should be a big hit with California Chardonnay drinkers. Mouthwatering flavors of pear, apple crisp, honeysuckle, toasted coconut, and vanilla wafer are pleasantly balanced with bright acidity. Enjoy this beauty with a succulent roasted chicken and wild mushroom risotto.
