(2013 Vintage) 2013 Unfiltered Chardonnay reflects the opulence and profound intensity of the vintage with rich complex and vibrant fruit flavors balanced by savory barrel fermentation influences. The aromas of grapefruit, honey, vanilla, brioche and apricot are fresh and inviting. The palate is intense and powerful with rich fig and pear fruit flavors balanced by subtle creamy oak, nutty savory notes and a long lingering finish.
Poured smelling acidic and citrusy right out of the refrigerator. After a few minutes in the decanter we had a bit of butter and some malolactic creaminess. Well balanced, fantastic and classic Napa Chardonnay. We took a while to drink the bottle and it help up wonderfully as it warned up.
