Silverado Vineyards Chardonnay 2021
|California, Napa Valley, Carneros
Sweet Meyer Lemon, honeysuckle and flinty mineral aromas define the fruit character of our Sonoma Carneros vineyard, Vineburg. Weekly bâtonnage gives the wine a silky texture, and small stainless steel barrel fermentation highlights the vibrant, refreshing character of the wine made from this vineyard.
This is a 100% barrel-fermented white that offers substance and beauty. Ripe in Gravenstein apple, pear and melon, with a touch of peach, it is rich, structured and full bodied, with underlying elegance and lasting grace.
The 2017 Chardonnay Carneros Estate is intensely scents of baked apples, warm apricots and butterscotch with touches of cedar, brioche and paraffin wax. Medium to full-bodied with a pleasant oiliness to the texture, it unashamedly wears its oak on the finish.
