One of my favorite naming projects to date, I was given the opportunity to work with Plata Wines out of Napa in naming and designing a label for their newest buttery white. The wine itself is now the #1 Selling Chardonnay at mega retailer Total Wine & More.
From their website:
Love the yummy flavors of a buttery Chardonnay? Buttercream is California Chardonnay at its most luscious, a rich, sunny wine brimming with buttery flavor and notes of vanilla, spice and tropical fruit.
The Chardonnay grapes grown for Buttercream are ripened by the warm California sun until they’re bursting with flavor and a touch of sweetness. The winemaker takes this natural richness to the next level with careful malolactic fermentation, which converts tart acids into softer, round ones, adding creamy flavor and body to the wine. Oak finishing adds additional dimension and spice.
The result is a succulent, buttery wine that’s delicious to sip on its own, perfect to pour at casual get-togethers. It’s also a natural match for your favorite indulgent entrees, like rich brunch dishes, pasta in creamy sauce and fresh seafood napped with silky, melted butter.
