2019 Lincourt Zoula Nunn Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills
Named after Proprietor Bill Foley’s mother, our Zoula Nunn Chardonnay is the boldest of our black label series. Intense aromas of freshly baked vanilla wafer with a slight nuance of toasted coconut intrigue the senses from the first swirl of the glass. This is a decadent chardonnay with rich notes of dried honeysuckle flowers, crème brûlée, and caramelized sugar. The texture is hearty and opulent, pairing beautifully with a protein or fava bean ravioli in a brown butter sauce.
