Chappellet Chardonnay 2013
If you love Chardonnay, this is something special for you. Not only was 2013 one of the best growing seasons for Chardonnay in Napa Valley, the Chappellet Chardonnay hails from some of the most elite vineyards there – Kelly Ranch overlooking the San Pablo Bay, Poe Vineyards in Napa-Carneros, and Red Hen from Oak Knoll.
Combined, these vineyards produced a rich, ripe yet smooth Chardonnay that is a pleasure to sip before or with dinner. Enticing fruit layers of Meyer lemon, apple, pineapple and nectarine rise from the glass, underscored by hints of nutmeg, butter, cinnamon and orange blossom. On the palate, zesty flavors of orange and Key Lime are complemented by rich oak-inspired notes of vanilla and caramel which carry through to a long, satisfying finish.
This Chardonnay is perfect for the fast approaching Spring and Summer season. Buy six, because one just won’t be enough.
