Winemaker Eric Stern Notes
The balanced acidity and creamy fleshy texture suggest a wine that will continue to age beautifully. The concentrated flavors exhibit just enough minerality. A long secondary fermentation, the malo-lactic, throughout the spring of 2008, helped this wine to retain great freshness during its ten month elevage in select French Burgundian barrels.

This chardonnay will pair nicely with seafood, cream-sauced pasta dishes, raclette, and Asian cuisine, where ginger, garlic, sweet basil, and coconut will complement the complex flavors in this wine.

The 2007 vintage of Overlook represents a blend of 22 separate vineyards from some of California’s finest sites for this varietal. A few of the well known vineyards in this blend ar ...more... e Sangiacomo (Carneros), Sleepy Hollow (Monterey), Bien Nacido (Santa Barbara) and Beltane (Sonoma Valley). 2007 presented us with an ideal growing season and the result is arguably our finest Overlook Chardonnay to date. This wine has unparalleled purity.
