About This Wine:
Those are the ones that spend a great deal of time in barrels, developing “oaky” and spice nuances that deliciously complement the fruit flavors, but often make the wine challenging to pair with food.
Then there’s the fruit-forward style of Chardonnay embraced by Camden Place Cellars for its 2018 vintage. Camden Place tapped the Paso Robles viticultural area for the grapes. Nestled slightly inland, Paso’s warm, clear days are insulated from clouds, fog and severe winds so sufficient heat reaches the grapes. Then, after sunset, a marine layer moves over the region and cools temperatures by approximately 50 degrees, providing conditions conducive to maintaining outstanding acid structure and overall balance.
Most consider this fluctuation to be a key component to the varietal character displayed in the resulting wines. And Camden Place’s 2018 vintage is a textbook Chardonnay — fruitful, balanced and quite versatile with food.
