BLEND 100% Chardonnay
Morada Vineyards is a traditional winery that does not take itself too seriously and will bring a little fun in your life. The grapes come from vineyards that benefit from the deep rich soils that make-up the Lodi Appellation. The fruit benefits from warm sunny days and cool nights as a result of gentle breezes coming from the San Francisco Bay and the Delta waterways. This allows the fruit to mature and have a proper balance between fruit character and structure.
This Chardonnay has a brilliant golden straw color. The aroma has a blend of citrus and tropical notes that are vibrant and rich. The palate has creaminess and you will find characteristics of melon, citrus fruit, apples and a slight bit of tropical fruit on the nose that carries through to the finish. The wine has a crisp freshness from a good balance of acidity. This wine would be delicious with grilled halibut with grilled peached compote, Chinese chicken salad with fresh Mandarin oranges, or barbequed ham with a pineapple glaze.
