Plumpjack Reserve Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

$49.99

New release of Plumpjack's Reserve Chardonnay - limited. The 2016 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay is a fantastic Napa Chardonnay. Aromas of white peaches, pear, orange blossom and warm apple pie filling are followed on the palate with flavors of Fuji apples, cinnamon stick and lemon curd. Very pleasant to drink now but the acidity gives it room to age. Plumpjack opts not for the typical profile of Napa Chardonnay with this bottling, but for the "alternative," without malolactic fermentation, and the attendant buttery palate profile. The winery's vintage note explains: "The cooler Carneros site imparts this wine with fresh green apple and Bartlett pear on the nose, while the warmer St. Helena site lends to some tropical notes. The Carneros vineyard also gives this wine a beautiful, bright, lively acidity, which is balanced by the creamy, rich texture of the St. Helena fruit. A touch of oak gives the wine traces of vanilla, flint, and spice."

I ❤️ most everything P’jack, but this just wasn’t working for me. Fruit and acidity both overpowering but could calm down easily with time.

Sits in the heart of Napa Valley's renowned Oakville region, the winery building and vineyards date back to the 1800s, when winemaking pioneers first took advantage of a unique position on the valley floor. Sourced from 2 vineyards, Los Carneros & St Helena. Crisp stone fruit aromas with tropical fruit notes. On the palate apple and pear flavors layered with smooth creamy vanilla oak. Lingering finish ending with nuances of wet stone, well balanced.
