Made from early ripened Chardonnay grapes at 21 to 22 degrees bailing, Glen Carlou uses special water-bent barrels from a cooper in France. These sophisticated barrels impart a light touching of oak and allow the fruit to express itself, producing Glen Carlou’s Classic Chardonnay style. All fruit for this wine is hand harvested over a three week period resulting in a number of batches with varying sugar and acidity levels. The result is a well balanced wine with elegance and restraint.
The wine is fresh and vibrant with lemon curd and pineapple characters highlighted on the palate.
Enjoy with seabass with charred cherry tomato, aqua pazza, cannellini beans and green olive butter or pan seared scallops with cauliflower puree.
