TERROIR TERRIER

2019 CHARDONNAY

CALIFORNIA

We are always on the hunt for special wines, sniffing out new terroirs that we feel are up to the challenge of producing wines that meet our rigorous quality standards. With Terroir Terrier, we blend grapes from several Chardonnay vineyards located just over the border of one of California’s most revered and expensive AVAs! In each bottle, you’ll find the same breadth, depth and voluptuousness of some of California’s most expensive Chardonnay bottlings at a fraction of the price.

WINE PROFILE

Satiny, rich and complex, Terroir Terrier Chardonnay features layers of pineapple, apricot and pear flavors that are perfectly balanced, bold and concentrated. The round, intense mid-palate turns elegant and sophisticated on the finish.

PAIRINGS

Pair Terroir Terrier Chardonnay with:

  • Breaded pork cutlets

  • Fondue

  • Whole garlic crab

  • Margherita pizza

  • Italian-style seafood pasta

  • Salty snacks like potato chips and popcorn

TYPICALLY DELICIOUS

Chardonnay is the most adaptable and versatile white wine grape in the world, as well as being the most popular. In California, Chardonnay also wears the crown as queen of white wine varieties, planted in every corner of the state, producing a myriad of delicious wine styles.

Despite being the most widely planted variety in the entire state, California Chardonnay adapts incredibly well to the specific growing circumstances in which it’s planted. Terroir Terrier hails from the inland valleys of the state, giving it the ability to consistently develop rich, round flavors that provide immense up-front pleasure and hint at tropical fruit.
