About the Wine
This superb white Wine by Drifting Wines is produced in the Lodi County area of California. This wine is exclusive to Matthew Clark, you won't find it at multiple retailers. Available in 75cl bottles, supplied by Goldstone Land Company. Drifting Chardonnay, Lodi is a delicious wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This screwcap wine is made with added suplhites but is good for vegetarian drinkers. Just perfect with chicken, pork, pastry with rich buttery and creamy sauces. This wine is within our core range for wine.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.
- Green Apple
Due to an extended, cooler growing season in 2019, grapes ripened with lower levels of sugar and a higher than average yield. The wines are full flavoured with fresh acidity and superb balance. The USA should not be overlooked for only producing full-bodied, powerful wines - there is so much more to discover beyond the stereotype.Explore USA
