2013 Oro de Plata Chardonnay
A vibrant, fruit, mineral driven Chardonnay blends aromas and flavors of crisp green apple, lime peel and clean slate, all wrapped up in a clean, zesty mouthfeel.

Keller Estate’s is located at the south end of the Petaluma Gap, just up from San Pablo Bay. The fruit for this Chardonnay was hand-picked, then whole-cluster pressed, and the wine did not go through malolactic. The result is a pale straw yellow color—befitting its name, “gold from silver.” Its scent is reminiscent of a day at the shore: warmth, herbs, lemon rind, slight brine. The body is light, not creamy or leesy but smooth and even-tempered. Flavors of musk melon, honeydew, and faint citrus are carried along on a waving sheet of satin. This is a wine for fresh cheeses, light cream, eggs, chicken, chicken salad.
