Alquimista Cellars ‘Haiku’ Chardonnay 2016

Sanel Valley, Mendocino County, California

Alquimista is an artisanal winery from self-proclaimed “Pinot Disciple” Greg La Follette and Patrick Dillon that aims to create vibrant, balanced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California’s cool climate. Together they have developed some of the most renowned growing sites in Sonoma and have put into place meticulous winemaking techniques that highlight the unique character and intense expression of the region.

Tasting Notes:

This wine shows yeasty cookie dough, piecrust and lemon blossom aromas. Tropical fruit and zesty citrus are highlights of the palate. There are light flavors of vanilla amid a balanced acidity that shows a Chablis-like character.

Pair it With:

The best food pairings with this wine will take advantage of its naturally high acidity which can act as a palate cleanser and work wonders with delicate, creamy sauces. Due to its lighter, more delicate profile, we recommend sticking to lighter meats and fishes including chicken, quail, trout, bass, halibut, cod, clams or scallops.
