Decoy’s 2020 expression is really a classic California style Chardonnay, with lemon lime, quince, Mandarin orange, a little bit of Crème brulee and butterscotch. The acidity and viscosity makes this an ideal food wine and the soft nature of the flavors means it can pair with a wide variety of dishes from pasta to sushi and fish, to fettuccine Alfredo, and roasted chicken. For an inexpensive Chardonnay this really showcases what’s great about a California appellation since the grapes were harvested from various grape growing regions in various counties, therefore it truly represents the Golden State.
