Meiomi Chardonnay is a Chardonnay blend and by that I mean it is a blend of Chardonnay from three diffferent coastal regions of California.  Each of these three regions bring a different terrior expression to the wine.

The wine was aged in both French oak and stainless steel.  The oak really comes through on the nose of the wine.  Along with some buttered popcorn, there are notes of  pear and pineapple with a slight hint of minerality.

The palate is smooth and full of tropical fruit, guava, peach and hint of apple.  There is a nice spice on the finish.

I paired this as well as used the wine in my clam dish “Goddess Clams”
