In a nutshell:
Classy and restrained Californian Chardonnay
For their Heritage Reserve collection De Loach choose fruit from cool, fog-influenced vineyards sustainably farmed along the California Coast. Most of the blend is fermented in stainless steel to highlight the fruit character to which is added a small amount of barrel fermented wine to add an extra complexity and richness. Their Heritage Reserve Chardonnay offers aromas of pear, melon and pineapple and is bright and refreshing with good, but not overpowering, weight. Apple and mixed spice mingle in to add interest, and the finish has clean acidity to balance the full body.
When to drink:
With an ample but not overbearing body this is great with meaty fish like halibut, or simply prepared poultry.
