Day #35 of the year.

Foley Estates Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

As we’re still in the cold months, far away from cheerful Christmas lights, dreaming of warm months filled with cold drinks and comforting sunshine, I implore everyone to pour a chilled glass of Foley Estates Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay and fabricate the soon-to-be summer feeling, even if just for the night. I’ll enjoy my wine with a salad, with creamy avocado, plum tomatoes, cucumbers and smoked Salmon, to further enhance my fake summer atmosphere. As a Manhattan resident, theses cold months are daunting given that indoor dining is still unavailable. So, I’ll order my lovely salad from a local favorite (Ayza Wine & Chocolate Bar) and drink Foley chardonnay like June is just around the corner.

Tasting Notes

This is a bright, juicy Chardonnay with aromas of honeydew melon, brioche, green apple and baking spices. Lively acidity accompanies flavors of banana, toasted oak, and honey, which coat the palate. Silky viscosity precedes a lengthy finish.

Food Match

Perfect paired with clam chowder or Chicken Dijon, this Chardonnay's combination of structure and concentration helps it stand up to a wide array of dishes, including poultry and rich fish and seafood, like lobster and salmon.
