Silverado Vineyards – Chardonnay 2016, Vineburg Vineyard – Carneros, Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers crunchiness. It reveals notes of crunchy / fresh vine peach and small notes of fresh citrus (lemon, grapefruit) combined with slight touches of crispy green apple as well as slight zest hints. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, suave and offers an almost saline minerality as well as a fine acid frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy peach, fleshy apple and small notes of citrus associated with small touches of mirabelle plum / crunchy small yellow fruits. Good length and good persistence.
