The 2018 Black’s Station Chardonnay has pretty aromas of stone fruit and barrel spice that lead to fresh flavors of apricot and white peach. The appealing fruit sweetness mingles with a creamy, buttery note. 60% malolactic fermentation adds a nice viscosity.
Due east of Napa, tucked away in northern California’s rolling Dunnigan Hills, is a little town called Zamora. But back in the late 1800’s, folks around here used to call it Black’s Station. At its height, this hub founded by J.J. Black boasted a hotel, two stores, a jail, blacksmith shops and a town hall. Today we grow our grapes just three miles from Zamora. We like to think that they carry with them the character and frontier-style of that old town.
Pair this easy drinking wine with spit-roasted chicken, fish tacos or a big Greek salad.
