2014 Dierberg Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley

Balanced and versatile Santa Maria Chardonnay

2014 Dierberg Star Lane Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley

Dierberg’s Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay is ripe but easygoing, balancing fleshy tropical fruits—guava, mango, and pineapple—with a kick of salt and citrus. A whiff of brushy herbs, especially sage and bay leaf, adds dimension. The palate is spangled with lemon and lime, while the finish is briny and long.

Pair this wine with a mixed cheese course, light meats and poultry, shellfish, pâté, or smoked and salty foods. Also good all by itself.
