Grgich Hills Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
After opening to touches of oak and reduction, this white evolves into a lovely swan, beautifully structured and deep in texture and flavor. Pear, apple and pineapple wrap around toast and dried herb, finishing strong and supple. This will do well with further aging; enjoy 2021-2026.
The 2016 Chardonnay reveals intense white peach, pear tart and pineapple scents with touches of honeysuckle, struck flint, pie crust and honeycomb. Medium-bodied with fantastic tension and loads of citrus and tropical layers, it has a satiny texture and finishes with great length.
The 2016 Chardonnay is slightly more straightforward, with some toasty oak in its ripe orchard fruits, brioche, and spicy aromas and flavors. This nicely textured, medium-bodied, balanced effort will drink nicely for 4-6 years.
Very savory, with intense acidity behind the roasted pear and apple flavors. Finishes on a slightly candied note. Drink now.
