Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Tasted from barrel, the 2018 Chardonnay is shaping up to be magnificent. Fresh, light on its feet and saline - surprisingly so - the 2018 dazzles with its energy and total class. This may be the single most elegant Chardonnay I have ever tasted from Pahlmeyer. All of the richness is there but bright lemon confit, white flowers, mint and tropical overtones all grace this exquisite Chardonnay. I can't wait to taste it from bottle. In 2018, Pahlmeyer will not bottle a Savoir-Faire selection; all of the best fruit is here.
Not yet bottled, the 2018 Chardonnay is a brilliant effort in the making, showing a rich, powerful, classic Pahlmeyer. Buttered citrus, toasted bread, honeysuckle, and brioche all flow to a full-bodied Chardonnay that has both richness and freshness.
