Day #270 of the year.

St. Francis Sonoma County Chardonnay 2018

It’s National Dumpling Day! Dumplings (or in Chinese ‘Jiaozi’) are a treat! You can enjoy them a plethora of ways steamed, boiled, or fried, filled with pork, seafood or vegetables with a variety of herbs and spices. My favorite are steamed pork and cabbage dumplings which pair delightfully with St. Francis Chardonnay. The wine is crisp with green apple and juicy pear notes that works well with the filling. The medium mouthfeel and creamy texture of the wine plays up the doughy mouthfeel of the dumpling shell.

Sonoma, California

Tasting Notes

This is a refreshing, medium-bodied Chardonnay with flavors and aromas of green apple, juicy pear and melon with a background note of marzipan. Bright and crisp, the wine is nicely balanced with a touch of minerality on the smooth and silky finish.
