Staglin Family Vineyard Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
|Brand||Staglin Family Vineyard|
Big and rich, offering a juicy mix of apple, pear and salted almond flavors that are open-textured and spicy. Buttery notes emerge on the finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay has a wonderfully expressive tropical fruit nose, offering notes of pineapple, green mango and fresh grapefruit plus hints of honeyed toast, orange blossoms and nutmeg. Medium-bodied, soft, refreshing and approachable at this youthful stage, it has a lovely spiciness contributing to the depth on the finish.
