Wine Review: Girasole Vineyards 2010 Chardonnay, Medocino

This wine is a straw color. The nose is filled with aromas of citrus and apples. The palate has those same fruit flavors with a bit of toasty oak integrated into the wine. I found the mouth feel to be medium to full, creamy and round. The oak influence is found on the finish along with the fruit.  This is a wine that begs to be paired with food. I sampled it with a bite of roasted chicken breast that was seasoned with herbs, which was a nice pairing. But, I then paired it with a piece of fried catfish. The fried catfish brought all the fruit flavors alive. I think this wine would pair well with fried or grilled seafood, chicken and creamy pasta dishes. There needs to be richness in the foods to compliment the richness of the mouth feel of this wine. This wine is also Estate Grown, Hand Picked Family owned since 1955 and Vegan Made with Certified Organic GrapesNote: This wine was a sample provided by Girasole Vineyards. http://www.girasolevineyards.com SRP $13.00
