2016 Chateau Montelena Napa Valley Chardonnay
From a modestly well-known winery.
Honeysuckle, jasmine, and apple blossom, along with wispy notes of vanilla and lemon balm, highlight a harmony of classic Chardonnay aromas. Green apple, candied orange peel, and baking spices anchor a panoply of vineyard flavors. Seamlessly interwoven between each is fresh, bright acidity along with incredible minerality and depth that slowly build texture and weight. The contrast between silky toast and sweet pear highlights an exceedingly rich finish that will only become more supple and dynamic with age.
Montelena's 2016 Chardonnay is terrific. Fresh, nuanced and light on its feet, the 2016 is striking for its freshness and understated intensity. Lemon peel, almond, chamomile and floral overtones add shades of nuance throughout, but above all else, the 2016 stands out for its bright, crystalline tension and overall energy. What a gorgeous wine this is.
