Chappellet Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

SKU 22979


This wine begins with an enticing nose displaying layers of pineapple, nectarine, citrus blossom and apricot, as well as delicate oak-inspired notes of vanilla custard, clove and nutmeg. On the palate, it strikes a lovely balance between bright acidity and creamy richness, with vibrant layers of tropical fruit, lychee and orange zest supported by hints of melted butter and crème fraiche.

Wine EnthusiastA tropical tease of guava permeates before citrusy green apple and cinnamon brioche introduce themselves on the midpalate in this well-made, memorable wine. The oak is subtle and well-integrated, allowing plenty of room for the freshness of lasting, vibrant acidity to take indelible hold.

Wine SpectatorLemon drop, Asian pear and fresh-cut apple flavors make for a crisp white that features touches of richness. Lush midpalate, with a lithe, spicy finish. Drink now through 2021. 3,871 cases made.
