My Favorite Neighbor MFN Blanc Chardonnay 2021
|Region||California, Central Coast, San Luis Obispo County|
|Brand||My Favorite Neighbor|
My Favorite Neighbor’s MFN Blanc Chardonnay White Wine showcases a deep, rich color of golden straw, the first clue that this is a serious chardonnay wine. Bold aromas of pear, green apple, and lime peel are followed by nuanced aromas of ginger root, brioche, and orange blossom. This California wine’s palate demonstrates broad depth and laser-like focus, offering a pleasant acidity and saline minerality that are ensconced in rich flavors of pie crust, clotted cream, and burnt caramel. Made with a distinctly defined, shared vision and with 100% chardonnay grapes sourced from exceptional vineyards in San Luis Obispo County, this California chardonnay is honest and obsessive, much like the meticulous farmers who dedicate themselves to the land where these grapes grow. This world-class California white wine, crafted without any shortcuts or compromises, is the result of collaboration with these farmers and their crews, who have become favorite neighbors. Aged for eight months in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels, this chardonnay wine’s fresh vibrancy can be tasted now, or you can wait to experience its wild complexity 10 years from now. Enjoy a glass of wine on its own, or pair this bottled wine with your favorite meal year-round, perhaps in the company of friends who also may be your favorite neighbors!
The 2021 Chardonnay is very ripe in style with scents of banana chip, apple pie, jasmine, allspice and brown sugar. The full-bodied palate is packed with ripe, spicy fruits and plenty of refreshing acidity, and it finishes long with a satiny, mouth-coating texture. It's an old-school style reminiscent of Napa that fans of ripe, oaked Chardonnays will enjoy.
