Coppola Diamond Collection Chardonnay 2018
The scent of an inviting aroma from the kitchen, one hot summer day when your mom surprised you with your favourite pastry.
Diamond Collection Chardonnay is an extremely well-balanced wine with lush flavors lifted by bright, natural acidity. The quality of Chardonnay from the 2018 Monterey harvest was exceptional. Intensely fragrant fruit with rich concentration was the hallmark of the vintage. It is aromatic and mellow with scents of vanilla, crème brûlée, baked apple and grilled lemon – just like the inviting aroma from kitchen, one hot summer day, when you mom had baked your favourite pastry. A sip of Coppola diamond Collection Chardonnay reveals juicy flavors of pears, tropical fruit and citrus, with alluring aromas of spice and toasted oak, and finished with a light creamy texture.
By using malolactic fermentation and lees aging, a creamy palate with beautiful wine body and depth was achieved. Diamond Collection wines are made from grapes grown across California and Oregon, and are carefully combined to create wines perfect for all occasions – including those special just because ones.

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola, this full-bodied Cali Chard is fragrant with white florals, ripe red apple and smoky aromas. Dry with ripe apple, nutty and smoky flavours on the palate finishing with fresh acidity for food. Chill and pair buttered lobster rolls.
Lots of dusty, toasty oak comes through in the aroma, while the flavors turn to baked, spiced apples. It’s a medium-bodied wine that’s highly stylized.
