About This Wine
2014 Dreaming Tree Chardonnay is golden straw in color, with baked pear and peach flavors that jump out of the glass. Toasty and rich up front, finishing crisp and elegant. This well-balanced, medium-bodied wine is easy to enjoy and will bring a taste of California right to your home.
The 2014 growing season was hot and dry, pushing harvest up to the earliest to date. Fortunately, nighttime temperatures still dipped into the 50s, which was great for maintaining the natural fruit acidity. September also cooled a little, providing much needed time to catch up on getting all of the grapes in. In October, the heat returned and ripened the fruit for the balance of harvest. Overall, this year delivered big fruit expression, great tannin development, and nice ripeness across all varietals.
Delicious with grilled seafood; goat cheese and mushroom pizza; herb-roasted chicken; or stone fruit, ricotta, and arugula salad.
