' Quintessential - Joseph Thomas California Chardonnay

Joseph Thomas California Chardonnay 2021


Straw-colored, this wine offers intense aromas of citrus blossom, lemon zest and fresh-baked apple tart. The nose carries through to the palate with added flavors of fresh apricot and marzipan. The rich, luscious mouthfeel is balanced with bright and crisp acidity. The finish is long and enjoyable.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The 2021 vintage saw another moderate growing season with late rains in March leaving the water table full, a few heat spikes and low rainfall throughout the rest of the season. This yielded high-quality fruit, ready to be picked mid-harvest. The fruit was sourced from prime California vineyards, then crafted with quality and care.

Interesting Facts
Joseph Thomas Kreps (February 27, 1925 – December 30, 1999) was our patriarch who lived in service to our family and country. He believed one of life’s greatest blessings is family and our brand is a tribute to him. The coat of arms emblazoned on the label incorporates elements from the four crests that make up Joe’s family tree; Finnegan, Kreps, Rodgers, and Christensen. These key symbols speak to Joseph Thomas’ family legacy.

Serving Hints
This wine pairs well with roasted chicken, seared halibut, creamy pasta dishes, and soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert. It is an ideal wine for creating moments to remember with family and friends.
