Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016


SKU 114243


The 2016 Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay has bright straw gold color in the glass. Clean floral aromas, including honeysuckle and orange blossom, mingle with notes of vanilla, brioche and shaved almonds before leading into a palate of sweet grapefruit and spice. This is a wine of great depth, with fine acidity and thorough minerality that balance the vivid fruit characters and carry onto a satisfying finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay has a lovely savory, yeasty/toasty nose over a core of warm grapefruit, fresh apricots and allspice with a touch of candied ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and spicy layers, supported by great freshness and finishing long and creamy.

Wine SpectatorRich and generous, offering an outlay of fig, honeydew, anise and light apricot flavors. Shows a measure of finesse and grace. Given the full body, this is quite elegant.
