Notes from Lingua Franca:

"Sisters Chardonnay is a wine with lifted floral aromas and great length and complexity on the palate. Sisters also has the ability to evolve beautifully in the bottle and to reward patience with more complex aromas of white truffle and more lifted floral notes to augment the flinty, wet stone, fresh citrus and peach qualities the wine has in its youth.

This wine deserves to be served with simple poached or sautéed fish dishes especially rockfish, halibut, turbot, and dover sole with light herbed butter, garlic butter, or a classic Beurre Blanc sauce. Equally tempting are the royal halibut or king (chinook) salmon with dill sauce or quail with an lemon-herb marinade, grilled with Herbes de Provence. It is a powerful enough and yet crisp enough to go with Belon oysters or another meaty type of oysters or even oysters with a lemon crème fraîche, Oysters Rockefeller or grilled oysters in the half-shell. It is also expressive enough to go with poached salmon with sorrel sauce or a grilled Hamachi collar with rice and furikake. Equally good are tempura fish and vegetables and the finest smoked salmon or gravlax, and caviar".
