Duckhorn Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay 2017

$32.99

Duckhorn's new Chardonnay has arrived!  Duckhorn's Napa Valley Chardonnay draws from premium vineyards throughout the Napa Valley to create a lush, richly fruited Chardonnay that is aged in oak for an elegantly textured, complex and toasty style. According to winemaker Renee Ary, "what I like about this wine is that it is a classic. It follows in the Duckhorn style in that is elegant, balanced, bold, and has acidity that carries through to the finish. This vintage showcases layers of white peach, nectarine, and melon followed by warm notes of nougat, creme broulee, and chai. This lush and elegant Chardonnay offers vivid aromas of white peach, lime, melon and vanilla bean, followed by undertones of praline, fresh pie dough and pistachio gelato. On the palate, flavors of Bosc pear, honeycrisp apple and Meyer lemon are underscored by beautifully balanced oak, which lends warm nuances and layers of complexity that carry through to the long, silky finish.

Fresh and bright, yet buttery.... won this at the office wine pull and finally got around to drinking it. Still learning white wine and I’m very picky but I like this!

Crisp with plenty of acidity has lots of green apple and pear. There’s plenty of oak back bone with some astringent elements on the finish.

Nice wine but less food friendly than expected. Nice flavors of apple, pear and minerals contrasted with zippy acidity. This wine’s character changed quite a bit when paired with food, with some hits and some misses. Maybe needs more time in the bottle. Enjoyed the 2017 vintage with Chilean Seabass at the Palm Las Vegas.

More pale yellow than gold, crisp, complex, not overwhelming. Natural butter and oak, with modest apple, citrus and bananas, even custard. Nice acid, but smooth through finish. Very nice.
