10CHARD Fantesca Estate & Winery Update

As a part of the Fantesca mailing list, you have the opportunity to purchase some of our limited 2011 Fantesca Chardonnay.

This vintage marks Fantesca’s eighth offering of Chardonnay. Some of you might remember that we changed our bottle shape in 2007, to follow the more traditional Burgundian style that so clearly announces the wine inside. There is nothing simple about this bottle of wine, from the vessel that captures it, to the wine itself. Using an antique hand-made mold, each bottle is forged in France of a unique green glass, that is then frosted to create the eye catching texture you’ve come to expect. Held together with a deep punt to ease pouring, there won’t be an empty glass at your next dinner party. Why the fuss? Fantesca is the only Chardonnay Heidi Barrett makes – and that alone makes it special! The bottle’s just the finishing touch.

2011 Chardonnay

Pale straw in color with aromas of pears and ripe green apples. There’s a touch of grapefruit citrusy notes layered with a light kiss of oak. Smells like a classic ripe Chardonnay varietally correct. Across the palate the wine is lush yet crisp with slight mineral notes and a long clean finish. This is a medium-bodied, fruit-forward Chard, not heavy handed in any way. Should pair delightfully with a variety of foods.
