2016 Napa Chardonnay
We love the balance of toasty aromatics and expressive fruit this Chardonnay opens with; bread pudding and crème brûlée against a backdrop of stewed apricot and some of the rich buttery notes we expect from this style. Its bright acid balance and lingering, dry finish are what we look for in high quality Chardonnay. Enjoy now or age in your cellar for a few years. Yes, this a Chardonnay that can age well.
The gem pairs well with baked Brie, crab with butter and sourdough bread, lobster roll, cous cous with blistered cherry tomatoes and toasted almonds.
100% Chardonnay fremented and aged in 33% New French, 33% 2nd year French, 33% 3rd year French Barrels for nine months
