The Napa Cellars 2016 Chardonnay displays the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay characteristics indicative of this region. Aromas of peach, bright apple, and graham cracker excite the senses. Flavors of pear, crème fraiche, and pie crust are complemented by a creamy texture with balanced acidity and a nice, lingering finish of crème brulee and white peach.
At Napa Cellars, the Chardonnay grapes are carefully hand-picked, harvested and crushed. At the winery, the wine is fermented and undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation. The Chardonnay is then aged for seven months in French oak barrels, 35% new.
