New 2015 Dashaway Chardonnay Holiday Wine!
November 3, 2017
Artist Ruth Harper and her Flora Springs Dashaway Chardonnay label art.
In the spirit of Flora Springs’ annual tradition of producing special holiday-themed releases. This year we have decided to complement our Etched Holiday red wine offerings with a festive 2015 Dashaway Chardonnay offering. Our charmingly-illustrated Dashaway label features reindeer flying over Napa Valley vineyards on Christmas Eve. Created by illustrator Ruth Harper, who is best known for her work in many New York Times #1 best-selling children’s picture books, she captures a light-hearted whimsy that is reminiscent of the joy and excitement this time of year brings. Flora Springs wishes you, our friends a very happy holiday!
The 2015 Dashaway Chardonnay shows off rich, ripe, caramelized fruit, hints of warm apple pie and notes of Bosc pear and almond paste. Twice-weekly lees stirring and 30% malolactic fermentation give the wine a creamy, open texture, and the long finish coats the mouth in delicious vanilla custard. This is ideal as an aperitif, and also works well with roast turkey with all the fixings.
