Butternut California Chardonnay 2015

$18

Best Buy Under $20!                    Butternut is the newest offering from Tony Leonardini, whose family owns Whitehall Lane.  With premium Chardonnay from Carneros and from western Napa Valley, Tony aged this wine in 100% new French oak, imparting a buttery, nutty roundness to the flavor profile.  At under $20 it totally over-delivers. The 2015 Butternut Chardonnay is a wine that lives up to its name. It has round, creamy notes, hints of hazelnut and a finish that doesn’t want to quit. Grapes from the regions of Carneros and Coombsville in Napa and Santa Lucia and Arroyo Seco in Monterey broaden the flavor profile of Butternut. The wine spent 14 months on 110 percent new French Oak.

Boterig. Lekkere geur en smaak. Duurder dan anderen.

Definitely buttery with toasted Oak notes. Reminds me of the big chardonnays that were popular in the 80s and 90s. Lacking in elegance and subtlety.

100% burnt popcorn. No vanilla or oak here, not sure how anyone is saying otherwise.

Lives up to the name. Nutty, old leather. Funky for sure.

Interesting. Grapefruit, salt water taffy smells and tastes like buttery burnt oak.
