State of Mind Chardonnay
When we decided to make a SOM Chardonnay, we all agreed it would be in the style of the great Burgundy houses of France. What we couldnt agree on, however, was which great Burgundy house. There were two camps within our team: one that preferred the soft, round style of Domaine des Comtes Lafon and one with a predilection for Domaine Roulots crisp, angular wines. To solve this split in agreement, we decided to make our Chardonnay first in two separate styles, then blend the two to create a wine with both tension and opulence at the same time.
TASTiNG NOTESThe stunning Chardonnay from the famed LS Vineyard in Eola-Amity Hills is a bright juxtaposition of styles. On one hand, the wine is lean and have a fresh grip on the palate, on the other, it is soft and gentle with soft oak tones. The balance between these styles provides tension and textural intensity. Expect a palate that is juicy with crisp apples & citrus, while aromatically it offers a salty earth component as well.
FOOD PAiRiNGGoes well with butter or nutty flavors. When it comes to seafood it will pair well with seafood dishes based on shellfish like crab, lobster, shrimp, and mussels. You'll also find that it pairs very well with flaky white fish like halibut.
