Tasting Notes & Food Pairing
A warm, buttery glow sparkles in the goblet of our 2019 Chardonnay.   We at Damiani Wine Cellars have long made it our business to make a classic old-world style Chardonnay and this vintage doesn’t disappoint.   Buttery is the word of the day as this Chard evinces aromas of savory hand-churned butter and butter cream, along with sage and a crisp minerality--think rain on hot slate.  The palate is lingering and coats the tongue:  tart fresh orchard fruits, layer with a creamy and French oak, vanilla focused presence.  A strong and lasting, structured finish makes this wine an equal for all traditional Chardonnay food pairings.   Open, savor, enjoy!   Cheers!

Vintage Notes
Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to come.  2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall.  The growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season.  The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to achieve full ripeness and flavor development.  Overall, a solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
