Mountain Road Vineyard Chardonnay 2014


Expressing the terroir of our Warren County vineyard with aromas of pear, lemon curd, cooked vanilla, and white peach. Sweet, soft entry gives way to flavors of white peach and citrus that meld with vanilla and baked apple on a creamy, smooth palate. The calcium rich soil of Mountain Road helps create this subtle and rich Chardonnay that finishes with a sweet bright finish. It pairs wonderfully with chicken in a garlic cream sauce, baked goat cheese, shrimp etouffee or the Spanish classic Chiles en Nogado. This wine will age 5-10 years gracefully.

Regarding the Unionville Home Vineyard and Mountain Road Vineyard Chardonnays: The beauty is how intensely location, soil, and slope differences affect wines. Both wines are made from the same variety of white grape: Chardonnay. However, each is produced solely from grapes harvested from one single vineyard. Unionville Home Vineyard is sloped slightly northeast; the soil is clay loam and decomposing shale. Mountain Road Vineyard has a steep south-facing slope and a calcareous gravelly soil. Taste the difference between these wines and explore the concept of terroir.
