Staglin FamilyVineyards Chardonnay Estate 2014
Rutherford, Napa Valley
The nose is fruity, incisive and offers intensity, a small freshness and harmony. It reveals notes of white fruits, stone fruits and small notes of exotic fruit associated with a hint of citrus, slight touches of peach flowers as well as slight vegetal touches, butter and very discreet notes of wood / oak. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit aerial and offers minerality, juiciness, tension, fat, complexity, finesse as well as a nice and unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of stone fruit, white fruits (stewed pear, nectarine) and fine notes of citrus notes (tangerine, lemon) associated with a hint of quenette, passion fruit as well as discreet hints of honey. Good length and nice aromatic persistance.
