Artesa Winery Artisan Carneros Chardonnay 2012


Winemakers Notes:

Artesa is a destination winery with spectacular wines, great architecture, scenic views and very special sculptures. It was designed by Barcelona architect Domingo Triay and the sculptures are from renowned artist Gordon Huether. The Winery is built in a hillside and the 360-degree views will take your breath away. The winery celebrates the marriage of art and wine. In this tradition, winemaker Mark Beringer handcrafted this exceptionally well made Chardonnay. A light yellow hue. An alluring display of tropical and citrus fruits on the nose including apple, pear, white peach and toasty vanilla oak. A smooth and pleasing mouth feel with generous fruit including yellow peaches, and guava, with Apple pie, white flowers and Asian spice. Well balanced and made in a consumer friendly style. Nearby Artesa is the Carneros Inn and the Boon Fly Café. Try this with their specialties including Dungeness Crab Cake, Onlone Smoked Salmon, Fish ‘n chips and Chicken and waffles
