“The 2019 Chardonnay Hungry Blonde comes from the winery’s own Carneros vineyard and includes just 15% new French oak. The result is slightly smoky, with attractive notes of grilled sweet corn and ripe peaches. Full-bodied, round, generous and easy to drink, it delivers touches of buttered toast on the finish. In the context of Napa Valley, it’s a reasonably priced effort with broad appeal.”
About living life to the fullest
Confident and ambitious about what she wants in life
Surrounded by friends, both old and new
Curious with a thirst for knowledge and experiences
True to herself, and listens to an inner voice…
Hungry Blonde is a stylish and elegant wine that embodies curiosity and confidence, encourages us to be around friends, relax, and live in the moment. Reminiscent of a California dream, the wine’s focused flavors suggest green apples, lemon zest and, thanks to pretty French oak, a slight graham cracker note.
The elegance and richness of this Chardonnay make it an ideal partner to luxurious seafood and simple poultry dishes. Lobster or meaty white fish in a creamy or buttery sauce (such as beurre blanc or beurre noisette) will allow the wine’s complexity to shine, as will roast poultry. For vegetarian options, rich starches, such as risottos, puff pastry and creamy pastas, will be ideal.
