Description<p>Unobstructed by oak, Sonoma Carneros Chardonnay fruit provides wonderful aromas of peach, pear, and melon while a touch of Muscat provides accessibility. It’s an unoaked delight and a tasteful tribute to the person in your life anticipating their next "Calgon, take me away" retreat.</p><h2>Production Notes</h2><p><img align="left" border="0" height="145" src="/assets/images/products/large/son5731.jpg" style="margin-right: 20px; margin-bottom: 10px;" width="250" /> Our Mira Luna Tough Day Chardonnay is a one-of-a kind release crafted by winemaker Francis Sanders using Carneros grapes. The bottle features a whimsical edition of our Mira Luna label, designed by David Griffin, with a cartoon drawing of a woman relaxing in a tub sipping said Chardonnay.</p><p>The label is based on the characters from <em>Corked</em> the comic. While poking fun at the winemaking industry, the strip chronicles the adventures of a fictitious Russian River Valley cult winery, Isinglas Cellars. Follow the fullmoon antics of this character and more at <a href="http://www.corkedthecomic.com">www.corkedthecomic.com</a>.</p><p>Derived and bottled at a winery known to produce world-class Chardonnay, this wine took three tries over a five-month period to get it right. The third time was truly the charmer! By final release, it developed into a Chardonnay exhibiting pristine varietal fruit proudly framed in Sonoma Carneros terroir, accessible to a rank beginner while providing value to the most jaded connoisseur.</p><h2>Serving Suggestions</h2><p>The traditional family meal of ham topped off with pineapple rings, cherries and a sweet glaze is the perfect opportunity to showcase this New World Chardonnay. It’s also a classic aperitif.</p><h2>Awards</h2><p><strong>Silver, 2010 World Wine Championships:</strong></p><p>"Aromas of pineapple segments, floral waxy lip balm, and tropical fruit custard have a peppery spice edge and follow through on a brisk entry to a tart, dry light-to-medium body with nice smoothness. Finishes with a baked apple and orange peel fade."</p><p><strong>Bronze, 2010 San Francisco International Wine Competition Label Design Awards</strong></p><p><strong>2010 World Wine Championships Packaging Competition:</strong></p><ul><li>Silver, creativity category</li><li>Silver, graphic design category</li><li>Bronze, style category<br /> </li></ul>
