Canyon Road Wine Review
Inspired by the scenic roads that wander through California’s stunning wine country, this brand crafts beautifully structured wines that express true varietal character. The winemakers at Canyon Road work closely with local growers to assure quality fruit and vinify the grapes separately before blending them to achieve smooth, well-integrated wines of complexity and depth.
Chardonnay is a versatile white wine grape variety, making it the perfect blank canvas for winemakers to experiment with different winemaking techniques and create unique wines. With its rich array of apple, pineapple, peach and spice flavors, as well as vanilla and a touch of oak, Canyon Road Chardonnay is an off-dry white wine that delights.
Ample aromas of green and citrus fruit, coupled with cinnamon spice, lead the way to a palate of pineapple and apricot. The creamy texture of the wine accentuates these flavors. A touch of hazelnut and cinnamon spice also provide depth.
This wine is medium-bodied, with a smooth and refreshing finish. It’s a great accompaniment to a wide range of foods.
It pairs well with a variety of seafood, meaty fish, and soft cheeses. It is particularly delicious with mini lobster pot pie or Dungeness crab mac and cheese, as the smoothness of this wine complements their flavor profiles perfectly.
It is a budget-friendly wine that is available at many outlets. Moreover, it has a low caloric density, making it an ideal companion for those looking to watch their calories or lose weight. The wine has a modest alcohol content of 13,5% per 750ml bottle.
