CREAMY CALI CHARDY! GOLD MEDAL. 93/100
Looking for a Gnarly Californian chardonnay to knock your socks off... look no further!
Located in Lodi, Central Coast, California, Gnarly Head wines began with a vision in 2004. On a mission to make a serious Zinfandel, Gnarly's winemakers quickly discovered the head-trained, spur-pruned, 100 year old gnarled vines produced fantastic chardonnay as well. They took it as a challenge to create the biggest, boldest chardonnay ever made.
Gnarly Head Chardonnay 2018 raises the bar for this classic varietal. This Chardonnay is a juicy, full-bodied wine that explodes with bright citrusy aromas of lemon zest, honeydew melon and just a hint of toasty oak. Big bold flavors of citrus and apple with a touch of vanilla ensure a perfect match with a range of cuisine, including chicken curry, grilled shrimp and spaghetti carbonara.
