Lucinda & Millie Organic Chardonnay, 2010, Mendocino County, California

17 Aug

DSCN1959-001Lucinda, a sheep, and Millie, a chicken, are the mascots of this organic vineyard and farm. Lucinda and her flock graze between the vines to control cover crops; Millie’s friends act as the pest control squad, gathering unwanted insects from the vineyard. The Chardonnay is similarly clean and green, with only 10% of the wine seeing oak. All the bright acidity and green apple notes shine through with perfect clarity, making this a very food-friendly Chardonnay. Enjoy it with spice-rubbed beer can chicken. $14
