Named after the Italian social clubs found in classic Brooklyn, Social Club White offers an easy-drinking, clean, fresh, crisp style of Chardonnay. SCW is indicative of the cool climate aspects in New York offering refreshing, food-friendly acidity, with notes of crisp apple, pear, and a touch of tropical fruit. It finishes with a hint of vanilla and lingering, palate cleansing minerality.
Not at all heavy or oaky, SCW is the perfect alternative Chardonnay appealing to both classic Chardonnay drinkers and ABC’ers (anything but Chardonnay)!
Social Club White makes a great aperitif or casual sipper, but is extremely food friendly as well. Oysters, shellfish, soft cheeses, salads, and general lighter fare make great matches.

Stainless-steel fermented at cool temperatures, with brief in-tank stirring on the lees. Blended with a small portion of Chardonnay, which was briefly matured in French oak to flesh out palate, with 50% malolactic fermentation to retain crisp, mineral driven flavors.
