Francis Ford Coppola Votre Santé Chardonnay 2015
Let’s toast: À votre santé! Francis Ford Coppola Votre Santé Chardonnay pays tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s grandmother, Maria Zasa, who would toast with the traditional French phrase, ‘à votre santé,’ every time she raised her glass.
Transparent gold colour. The bouquet has bright peach, quince and honeysuckle aromas. Elegant and refined. The full-bodied palate has smooth fruity flavours of ripe pear, white peach and quince with a hint of minerality. Notes of vanilla and nutmeg emerge from oak ageing, balancing the complex varietal character.
100% Chardonnay. An appellation-specific Chardonnay from a cool climate in Santa Barbara County. The cool and wet climate means that the vines grow in a stress free environment. Crafted in a terroir-centric style to showcase the character of a specific region. Fermentation occurs in a combination of oak and stainless steel for elegance and balance.
