Fog Bank Chardonnay 2017
Green's Pick of the Month, Sip on This, Creamy Garlic Chicken
With the evening tide, the fog rolls in and cools the vineyards and the nighttime temperature provides relief from the heat of the day, which extends the growing season. A longer time on the vine means a longer time to develop complex, rich varietal flavors.
At Fog Bank Vineyards, they select the finest grapes from California’s premier coastal wine regions, making a Chardonnay that is medium- to full-bodied with flavors of peach, honeydew melon and pineapple with a hint of vanilla and toasty oak on the finish. It’s balanced by good acidity with a rich mouthfeel and a juicy finish.
Enjoy with Brie, chèvre, Camembert, Gouda, jack and Parmesan cheeses. This is perfect for lobster rolls and other seafood. Crack open a bottle with turkey and ham dinner, rotisserie chicken or chicken with a cream sauce, such as the recipe below.
