B Side Chardonnay – 750ML

WS 87
WE 90

Our roots trace back to an authentic place. B Side wines are rare, unconventional and often lesser known. We follow a rhythm no one else can hear separating our wines from others with smooth, soulful palates and perfectly tuned notes. B Side is a complex wine, made simply. For those who know the difference.

Tasting Notes

The B Side Chardonnay is a brilliant, light gold color in the glass which exudes layers of fresh aromas; Honeycrisp apple, pear, lemon crème and toasted brioche bread. The aromas ring true on the lush palate with flavors of vanilla flan, toasted almond paste and honey notes which linger through to the persistent and crisp finish. The wine is well-balanced with ripe fruit character, spice and an undeniable streak of mineral and lime accented acidity. The wine is aged for 12 months with 20% of the blend aged in new French Damy and DJ oak barrels. The remainder of the blend sees a combination of seasoned one to two-year-old French Oak barrels as well as stainless-steel tank (on the lees), giving the wine a beautiful creamy texture.

Serving Suggestion

The B Side Chardonnay is a delicious wine to sip alone but it pairs perfectly with a well-prepared cheese board of Brie, Pecorino and aged Manchego.

Wine Spectator

87 points - Wine Spectator // Supple-textured, with a touch of bubblegum, apple and melon shaded by light toasty oak, clean and complex. Drink now. 8,000 cases made. å_åÑåÐJL (July, 2018)

Wine Enthusiast

90 points and Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast // Good balance and lively acidity make this dry, medium-bodied wine especially attractive. Fresh yet concentrated pear, almond and cream flavors start slowly, then build on the palate. -Jim Gordon (Ocotber, 2018)
