L U N A 'Blue Label' Chardonnay, Oak Knoll, Napa

Regular price $45.00 $35.00 Sale

WHY WE LIKE IT:

  • Perfect buttery balance
  • 93 Points and Gold Medal from Sommelier Challenge
  • Single vineyard estate wine

WINEMAKER: Shawna Miller, Alumni of Beaulieu and Rombauer and Philippe Melka and Moone-Tsai.

WHAT WE TASTED: Bursting with fresh notes of lemon and honey aromas, this delicately balanced wine plays on the palate with brisk tangerine and green apple notes that lead to a creamy toasted almond middle and a bright citrus finish. 

AVA DESIGNATED: Oak Knoll District, Napa Valley 

WHAT WE PAIRED:

  • Eggs benedict, homemade hollandaise, roasted potatoes
  • Tagliatelle with prosciutto and peas
  • Chicken Caesar salad

PERSONALITY: The Blue Label Series by Luna is a cut above and represents their foray into single vineyard bottlings. We applaud them and adore this perfectly balanced Chardonnay. We also believe winemaker Shawna Miller should be more well known.

TECHNICAL:

  • 15 months in French oak: 30% New
  • 40% malolactic fermentation
  • Clones Dijon and Wente: 50% blend
