I am so excited to review another wine from Concannon’s Conservancy line. A couple months ago I was introduced to this wonderful winery and sampled their Crimson & Clover wine. Here is a quick overview about what makes their Conservancy wines so special.
All of the Conservancy wines are sourced 100% from grapes grown in precious Livermore vineyards that are protected from urban encroachment by a conservation trust that preserves the land for perpetuity. All the Conservancy wines are terroir-driven with an emphasis on balancing fruit with wine-making style. The Tri-Valley Conservancy now has over 3,100 acres. Pretty impressive!
This was an incredible Chardonnay. I enjoyed it so much that I actually hide the bottle from my husband (Sorry honey). Needless to say, it didn’t last very long in my house. It was everything I enjoy in a good Chardonnay and more.
It is rich and creamy, yet fresh. Ripe fruit flavors of apple and pear lead to a hint of butter and caramel on the palate. The finish is elegant with a touch of vanilla and oak.
Oh man, just typing this up makes me want to go out and get another bottle for tonight.
Want to hear the best part?
This Conservancy Chardonnay only has an SRP of $15! Pick some up tonight and enjoy it with herbed ahi tuna (which happens to be my absolute favorite thing to eat) or pasta with your favorite cream sauce.
