Tasting Notes For Napa Cellars Chardonnay 2017
Grapes for the 2017 Napa Cellars Chardonnay were selected from vineyards in renowned Chardonnay locations including south Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and Carneros. The proximity of these vineyards to the fog and breeze from San Francisco and Marin Bay creates a cooler climate, which is ideal for growing Chardonnay. These coastal effects also allow for a longer growing season, giving the fruit more time on the vine and helping produce energetic acidity and flavorful fruit.
The Napa Cellars 2017 Chardonnay displays classic Napa Valley Chardonnay characteristics indicative of this region. Aromas of baked apple, ripe Bosc pear, crème brûlée and lemon curd excite the senses. A soft mouthfeel supports flavors of green apple flavors with orange zest and almond pastry balanced with late, crisp acidity pulling together this well balanced, full-bodied Chardonnay.
This is the perfect wine to pair with a Camembert French cheese plate drizzled with local honey and almond halves, or with panna cotta topped with fresh berries for dessert.
