ROBERT PARKER: The fruit for the 2005 A by Acacia Chardonnay was harvested at night and in the early morning to guard the aroma and flavors of the grapes. The grapes were received at the winery and primarily whole-cluster pressed. A combination of oak barrel toasting levels was used to provide complexity.
This wine offers aromas of apple, mango, fig and guava. The medium to full-bodied palate maintains impressive balance and flavor concentration, so it will hold its own with rich foods. The flavors of tropical and ripe stone fruits complement its acidity, and the finish is rich and long. You will love this bright and crisp Chardonnay that is perfect for summer afternoons spent with friends out on the patio. Enjoy it with seafood salads, tarragon chicken and coconut shrimp.
