Kacaba 2013 Barrel fermented Chardonnay

Golden in color with a lovely nose of pear and vanilla. On the mid palate the wine displays pear and vanilla to match the nose. The wine is a well made California style chard. On the medium length finish the wine is smooth and lingers nicely in the mouth. We paired it with pan fried scallops and it went very well. Yumm. I would give it a solid 90. Sadly not in the Lcbo and sold out at the winery. It was $39.95.

Details

A limited production wine sure to sell out quickly. A small batch wine with a projected bottling of 120 cases.

The Kacaba 2013 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay was barrel fermented using exclusively new French oak, which gives it its rich golden color and great texture. Aromas of honeyed apple, nuts, lemon-lime, and oak spices complement the full flavored palate of silky, buttercream flavors with hints of toasted bread and oak. This 2013 Chardonnay is nicely balanced, full bodied, and ends with a clean, elegant finish. Enjoy this wine on its own or match with poultry, creamy dishes, salmon or lobster.

Kacaba Vineyards Winery’s previous Barrel Fermented Chardonnay vintages have garnered ratings as high as 92 Points and are always impressive values.
