From California Cakebread Cellars 2015 is a classic, top-of-the-line Chardonnay. The Californian winery was founded in 1973. This Napa Valley Chardonnay is dry, full-bodied and zesty with intense apricot, creamy vanilla and toasty flavours on the palate with a rich, lush and long finish with a weave of tropical fruit. Chill and enjoy now. Pair with a roast turkey.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, scallops with a sesame ginger dressing, cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A rich full-bodied Napa Valley Chard showing green apple, tropical fruit and butterscotch nose, plus lemon on creamy palate. An excellent choice if you want white wine with turkey.
Tasted Dec. 2018

Pair with roast chicken. Enjoy now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews
