Stelvin screw cap enclosure
Are you an “ABC?” It stands for “Anything But Chardonnay” and it’s a real thing! In case you’re in that camp, please do yourself a favor and try this Chardonnay. It’s completely unoaked, and the name INOX is short for inoxydable, which is French for stainless steel– a clever nod to how it was made.
Beyond the great texture and mouthfeel this wine delivered, we found tart citrus notes of Meyer lemons and pink grapefruit combined with green apples and passionfruit. This Chardonnay was bright with abundant minerality and a long finish. Pair it with salads, spring pea risotto or grilled basil and garlic pork chops. If you like to nerd out on wine, turn any bottle of Chehalem wines around and read all the specs they provide!
