Grgich Hills Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay 2012

$42

Grgich Hills has always been known for its outstanding Chardonnay, and the new Grgich Hills 2012 Estate Chardonnay Napa Vallye only bolsters that reputation. This is just the second vintage that Grgich Chardonnay is estate grown, meaning they control everything from the vineyard to the bottle. The grapes were grown organically at their American Canyon and Carneros vineyards, where the coolness allows the grapes to develop complex flavors while maintaining a pleasing natural acidity. They do not allow the Chardonnay to undergo malolactic fermentation. This preserves the wine's crispness and acidity to balance its concentrated fruit. The full-bodied, elegant Grgich Hills 2012 Chardonnay has fresh aromas of acacia and citrus flowers, honey and a touch of mineral.

Wow, what a Chard from California's King of Chardonnay. The 2012 vintage has a generous, creamy nose, and on the palate so crisp with an amazing purity of fruit with very little oak to get in the way. Aged in French oak, using indigenous yeasts, from 100% Chardonnay grapes.

Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Prior notes still apply, love this producer, Burgundian style in Napa, last bottle.

The nose throws me every time on this bottle, a little Burgundian with stemmy, grape seed notes, little oak influence, mild citrus. Buy this and hold for only a few years for a reward. Not your typical Napa style. @David T saw your notes on this vintage, maybe consider a little more bottle age? I do consider this a pretty good value for CA, delivering the above notes for $35 and two years in our cellar.

Blind tasting. This is the one that surprised the hell outta me. Very clean, minimal oak and great minerality.

Haven't had it in a long time. Loaded with lemon. Definitely a branded flavor Chardonnay that has not changed in the many years since I had it last. Let's call this a trip down memory lane.

1222.2017 첫 Chardonnay! 최상의 컨디션이 아니었지만, 난 널 알았다. 부드럽지 않고, 찝질함.. 하지만 마실수록 그 특유의 향이 다음잔을 마시게하네.. 최상의 컨디션을 가지고 있는 너가 궁금하다.
