PlumpJack Winery Reserve Chardonnay 2022
The 2022 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay is a gorgeous, multi-faceted wine. The nose delivers layers of aromas—apple, baked pear, and lemon curd mingle with white peach, apricot, and honeysuckle with a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon just beneath the fruit. The palate is energetic and dynamic, beginning with a rich, mouth-filling texture reminiscent of lemon curd, followed by bright acidity that evokes lemon zest and honey-crisp apples. Finally, the beautiful acidity pulls the wine through the back of the palate, creating a long, structured finish. Composed of 100% Chardonnay from two different Napa vineyard sites, one in Los Carneros, and the other in St. Helena. Fermented and aged in 66% stainless steel tanks and 34% French oak barrels without malolactic fermentation.
