"Aromas of white peach, lemon rind and green apple follow through to a medium body, tangy fruit and a green tea undertone. Lighter style. Enjoyable. Drink now."

90 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker Wine Advocate

"The 2017 Chardonnay Karia features grapefruit, lime cordial and orange blossoms with marzipan and beeswax hints on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely vivacity and a refreshing line, finishing zesty."

Product Description:

"The name KARIA (KAR-ee-ah) is derived from the Greek word meaning graceful, and the 2017 KARIA Chardonnay lives up to its moniker. It shows how grapes from select cool-climate vineyards in southern Napa Valley can be vinified and blended into a seamless integration of fresh-fruit aromas and flavors, crisp acidity and subtle oak spice. Light and graceful: that’s KARIA.

This is a graceful Chardonnay with generous aromas of ripe Asian pear and citrus, peach, toasted almond and honeysuckle. Medium bodied, this wine has a gentle mid-palate with a touch of creaminess and oak on the finish. There is a nice balance to the acidity and minerality that enhances the freshness and elegance of this wine.

Try pairing this Chardonnay with grilled chicken with lemon aioli, grilled salmon with a cucumber, tomato and fresh dill salsa or roast chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta cheese." - Winery
