Gold Crush, Chardonnay, California 2014
One sip of this wine tastes like you're seeing the colored part of The Wizard of Oz movie for the first time. This blockbuster of a Chardonnay is collaboration between Kris Garrett and long-time friend Brandon Bergener. Kris was a retail/on-sale wine buyer for years and finally pulled the trigger with Brandon to make Gold Crush after seeing firsthand the enormous and consistent consumer appetite for texturally rich and buttery soft Chardonnay. After several months of phone calls, field trips across California and endless negotiations with grape growers, they were able to leverage contacts in the industry to produce this Northern California sourced Chardonnay. Gold Crush is classic and bodacious California Chardonnay. The wine went through full malolactic fermentation and the oak is well integrated so you get all the fruit up front with not too much wood. 14.9% alc.
