Nose of tropical fruits, pear, orange blossom, vanilla and little hints of baking spice aromas. The palate is smooth and round with a gentle acidity leading to a refreshing finish long with distinct aromatics.
Try this with a creamy salmon dish.

Avalon Chardonnay is made with grapes grown in Northern California including the Delta region. Here, the Sacramento and American rivers form an extensive delta located 100 miles east of San Francisco. Chardonnay is the most widely planted grape in the area, which gives the varietal a highly successful advantage. As temperatures rise in the California’s interior valley, cool sea breezes are pulled directly through the San Francisco Bay via the Carquinez Strait creating a cooling effect that has allowed exceptional wine grapes to thrive in the region for more than a century.
