Grgich Hills Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
