More about this wine from Napa, California
Birk O'Halloran and Karl Antle are longtime Wine Awesomeness partners. We've loved their rebellious take on wine from the very beginning. They started Iconic Wine out of a love for Chardonnay (and also comic books). They've done it again with the latest release of the Sidekick Chardonnay. It's an excellent example of what WA has spent the last 5 years trying to show about Chardonnays potential — not as the sweet fruit and oak bomb some have come to expect, but a wine with true depth!

With pear and citrus at its core, the wine gets a real lift where some Chardonnays fall into flat, flabbiness. For the 2018 vintage, the duo worked with multiple vineyard sources from around northern California, as far north as Anderson Valley to as far south as Lodi. This grape hunting led to finding the best fruit for the price to create a Chardonnay that doesn't feel cheap or oaky, but more like your bff everyday white wine. It's like someone keeps giving you flowers and fresh fruit but in bottle form.
