If you grabbed and saved our coupons two weeks ago, then you know this week is 2 for $25 on Landmark Overlook Chardonnay with the coupon. So let’s take a dive into the wine.
An elegant blend of premium fruit from Sonoma County, the vineyards used in the Overlook Chardonnay represent some of the best that 2016 had to offer. Greg Stach’s expertise selecting the finest sites and their growers’ excellent viticultural practices yielded truly exceptional fruit from respected parcels such as Lorenzo and Lone Oak in the Russian River Valley and Bald Mountain in the Sonoma Valley. The Chardonnay is hand harvested, hand sorted and fermented using all native yeasts providing the purest snapshot of what this vintage had to offer.
Pale lemon yellow, with aromas of ripe lemon, yellow apple, pineapple and toasted oak. Balanced and layered on the entry with ripe lemon, green apple and grilled ripe pineapple with attractive smoky oak and vanilla barrel notes. The crisp mid-palate shows savory chamomile flower and a pleasant mineral texture with sustained fruit that continues through the clean, textured finish.
Pair simply with yellowtail sashimi garnished with a fresh lemon wedge, or try it with a dressed-up chicken picatta, served with a pan reduction of lemon, butter, capers, and a touch of garlic.
