2014 Harken Chardonnay

By Chad Carns

Creamy, flavorful and classic California Chardonnay.

What ever happen to those creamy, full-flavored California Chardonnays? I feel like most white wines that hit my dinner table lately come in the dry French or off-dry riesling variety. But these classic Napa Valley flavor profiles of vanilla, oak and baked apricot pair perfectly with most chicken and fish recipes in The Gourmet Bachelor cookbook. Harken Chardonnay pays tribute to the California taste profile that comes from being 100% barrel fermented and 100% Malolactic.

Try Harken Chardonnay with Chicken Focaccia Sandwich, Potato-crusted Sea Bass or Coconut Bread Pudding. Yum!
