The Pomar Junction Picnic Chardonnay is a fresh and crisp wine with apple and pear flavors. The wine is produced in the "naked" or un-oaked style allowing the fresh fruit and brightness to shine through. This style is a delicious quaff and pure expression of the grape. The Merrill Family has been growing grapes along California's Central Coast for 8 generationa and are dedicated to sustainability in their vineyards. The Chardonnay for this wine is farmed by the family and it is in an excellent example of balance between fruit and acidity. It is a perfect wine to accompany with lighter picnic fare cold fried chicken, peel and eat shrimp boil and a platter of cheese, crudite, and ripe pears or apples.
