Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Chateau Montelena Chardonnay 2016

All of our wines from the 2016 vintage are incredibly floral and this Chardonnay is no exception.
Aroma’s of Honeysuckle, jasmine, and apple blossom along with wispy notes of vanilla and lemon balm highlight a harmony of classic Chardonnay aromas. In the mouth green apple, candied orange peel, and baking spices anchor a panoply of vineyard flavors.

Seamlessly interwoven between each is fresh, bright acidity along with incredible minerality and depth that slowly build texture and weight, beautifully.

This is a totally food friendly wine that can be enjoyed on its own, or as a complement to any number of dishes – especially fresh seafood, shellfish or poultry. The creaminess of a crab salad or lobster roll will cut through the acidity and citrus notes of the wine beautifully.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Tasted 1/31/2019 - Rated 90:
Sourced mostly from a tiny site in Oak Knoll, the 2016 Chardonnay Napa Valley sees no malolactic fermentation and is brought up in 10-20% new French oak. It's a steely, racy effort that has pretty notes of tart citrus, apple blossom, lemon, and hints of minerality, Clean, medium-bodied, very vibrant and fresh, it's balanced and lengthy. It's going to age as well. - Jeb Dunnuck
