Late Harvest Chardonnay

2015 Chardonnay

This well-crafted Chardonnay is a lovely complement to your holiday treats from rich desserts to hard cheeses to fruit pastries. The wine is incredibly lush and viscous with sweet richness and buttercream feel that is balanced by Sonoma-Cutrer’s classic crisp acidity resulting from the combination of barrel and stainless steel fermentation. Fruit flavors of peach, apricot, and pear mingle with notes of honey and brown sugar.

Flourless Walnut Cake With Lemon Cream and Fresh Berries

This is a very simple recipe that is perfect to share during a ladies lunch. The quality of the walnuts is crucial. If you suspect your walnuts have been in storage for a while, place them on a baking sheet in a preheated 375° oven and lightly bake for 3 to 4 minutes to “refresh” the flavor. Enjoy ​Sonoma-Cutrer’s The Cutrer Chardonnay with this cake.
