Journeyman Chardonnay

Peter and Cathy Seghesio make Chardonnay and Pinot Noir the focus of their Journeyman label while their San Lorenzo label is dedicated to fine zinfandel. If you are after a lush style of Chardonnay, a glass of this wine will certainly be welcome. It is a lush affair but its girth has been kept in check with a fresh line of acid and careful use of both barrel fermentation and a portion in concrete egg.  The concrete egg ferment gives the wine a creamy spice, as well as a polished and fleshy texture without toastiness.

A rich and creamy Chardonnay, one where the stonefruit and floral fruit has a refreshing line of mineral backbone. It is fuller bodied and softly rounded and a very good match for dinner or lunch. A juicy plump roast chicken salad, or perhaps a tender fillet of white fish accompanied by a hazelnut butter sauce. Of course, it does not require food at all being a tasty drop by itself!
