Marcassin Estate Chardonnay 2012 (For local pickup one day in advance!)

A vibrant and expressive organic Chardonnay, featuring flavors of pear, lemon zest, and a touch of minerality. Ideal for pairing with dishes like grilled halibut or a zesty citrus salad. Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) - The 2012 Chardonnay Marcassin Vineyard, which will probably be released in a few months, displays great minerality, notes of honeysuckle, orange marmalade, poached pear, and white flowers as well as a touch of quince. A wine of great intensity, yet incredibly ethereal elegance, this light greenish gold-colored wine is full-bodied, stunningly rich, and altogether remarkable. When you consider that they use 100% new French oak and 100% heavy toast for both their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, it is remarkable how little oak appears in these wines. This wine should age well for 10-15 years, as most of the Marcassin Estate Chardonnays have done to date.
