Here's an exciting new addition to the Z. Alexander Brown Uncaged line up, a bold, expressive Chardonnay. Known for his band and his music, Zac Brown is a creative spirit who has a passion for bringing music, food, and people together. The next logical step for him was to make wine. For this, his Uncaged series he teamed up with the resources of Delicato Family Wines and Napa Valley Winemaker John Killebrew. For this Chard they really decided to step up and source grapes from the elite Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. Grapes from this exclusive region in Monterey end up in wines with big scores and high prices. Well, with this wine you can enjoy the lush tropical fruit flavors tinged with notes of butterscotch along with zesty, mouthwatering acidity for a real bargain price.
This just received a Platinum Medal in the Monterrey International Wine Competition and Wine Review Online scored it 92 points saying "A very polished wine for the price, showing rich apple, pear, spice and hitting my crisp and creamy marker with a viscous texture and a bright acid bump in the finish that keeps the flavor coming. Try this with sea bass simply prepared." Whether or not you're a music lover, you're sure to be a fan of this latest composition from Zac Brown.
And Vinous sc ored this 91 points saying "Pale yellow-gold. Aromas of fresh melon tangerine and peach are accompanied by floral and smoky nuances on the perfumed nose. Seamless and focused on the palate displaying a suave blend of heft and vivacity to the ripe mineral-tinged honeydew citrus fruit and honeysuckle flavors. Closes with strong energy very good clarity and a bracing jolt of lemon zest."
