Duckhorn Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine EnthusiastThis wine is well sourced, its grapes coming from Brown Ranch, Toyon and Trefethen, among other sites. Aging takes place partially in barrels that have been soaked in water before toasting to lessen the impact, and in stainless steel. Light, crisp honeyed apple, pear and vanilla star alongside caramel and a floral flourish.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay opens with apples, pears and peaches with touches of croissant and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and fresh, it has lovely expressiveness.
