Chateau Montelena - Napa Valley - 2018
750ML / 13.9% ABV
Style: Golden straw-colored in the glass, the wine opens with cinnamon and ripe peach, bolstered by aromas of melon, fig, and pear. More fruity than floral upon release, there’s nonetheless plenty of honeysuckle and spice, softening to green apple and vanilla. Initially fused with lemon curd and ripe orange, there’s dynamic tension transitioning to the mid-palate between the suppleness of summer stone-fruit and the austere acid beneath.
Vineyard: The Napa Valley Chardonnay is made of 100% Chardonnay grapes and was aged in 100% French oak barrels for 10 months. Emblematic to the style of the estate, it offers concentrated floral, green apple aromas and a refreshing and persistent impression on the palate.
Wine & Dine: This Light-Bodied bottle of Chardonnay goes smooth and amazing with the likes of a Crab Salad or a Lobster Roll, other seafoods would also pair well.
