About Coppola 2016 Chardonnay, Pavilion, Santa Barbara, Sonoma
Introducing Diamond Collection Pavilion Chardonnay – the best of both worlds, old and new. It’s a bold Chardonnay with a sophisticated old world crispness melting into a rich, vanilla forward finish that screams new world – Santa Barbara and Sonoma County to be exact. Diamond Collection Pavilion Chardonnay is a delightful match to most any occasion. Pavilion Chardonnay is a full-bodied wine with a creamy palate balanced by a hint of tropical fruit and acidity. It begins with a delicate infusion of peach, pear, quince, and aromas of crushed stone. Its 9 months in French oak presents itself through hints of grilled almonds and vanilla on the midpalate, and is highlighted by a juicy and lingering finish. This wine was awarded a Gold Medal in the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and another Gold Medal in the Sommelier Challenge Competition.
