Red Bicyclette Chardonnay'03, Vin de Pays d'Oc, Southern France

Red bicyclette Chardonnay

Table wine made from Chardonnay from Limooux Region in Southern France produced by the well-known Gallo from California.

Technical Data: 100% chardonnay. 20% of the wine was fermented in older oak barrels for a fuller, softer mouthfeel with the balance of the cuvee fermenting in stainless steel tanks. A portion of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. Prior to bottling, components were selected, blended, then fined and filtered.

Description: Brilliant, pale yellow color. Aromas of tropical fruit and vanilla with hints of flowers and toasted oak. Crisp and vibrant entrance on the palate, medium bodied wine with apple and citrus flavors and creamy oak finish

Food Pairing & Service: Ideally suited to grilled fish, shellfish, Roast veal and Rotisserie chicken. Serve chilled.

Score: 7/10
