St. Clement Holiday Whites Collection
2011 Abbott's Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay
The fruit for this Chardonnay comes from our Abbott's Vineyard located in Carneros, which typically experiences a long, cool growing season due to the influence of the San Pablo Bay. The 2011 vintage features beautiful notes of vanilla, pear, green melon, cantaloupe and lemon custard. The wine has a creamy mouth feel with a bright acidity on the finish and pairs well with crab or white fish.
2012 Bale Lane Sauvignon Blanc
The 2012 Bale Lane Sauvignon Blanc layers bright aromas of tart cantaloupe, green apple, guava and persimmon with a slight floral hint that still lets the fruit notes take center stage. The complexity of the nose is further enhanced by a satisfying note of brioche. Clean and balanced with a broad, silky mouthfeel, the palate shows generously of ripe yellow apple and lemon preserves that linger through the long finish.
