Charles and Charles is a collaboration founded in 2008 between Food & Wine Magazine 2014 Winemaker of the year, Charles Smith (Charles Smith Wines) and Charles Bieler (Three Thieves, Gotham Project). The Charles & Charles Chardonnay is a firm, juicy, refreshing Chardonnay that picks up great power and depth in your glass. There are aromas of Pippin apples, jasmine and some citrus along with warm caramel. These flavors intensify on the palate where they are joined by light tropical notes and a streak of minerality on its mid-weight frame. Power meets finesse here.
