2018 Husic Vineyards Chardonnay
Region: Napa Valley
Cépage: Chardonnay (100%)
Size: 750 ml
" The combination of Old Wente clone and older vines planted in Goldridge soil is one the greatest recipes for success in this Sonoma Coast Chardonnay. Luckily, our plot at Dutton Ranch fits these specs to a tee. In 2018 the long steady growing season yielded thoroughly ripe fruit that spans the spectrum of aromatics and flavors possible in Chardonnay. The nose leads with highly perfumed lemon oil, mango, orange essence, exotic spice, verbena and fennel notes. On the palate the power and richness of Sonoma Coast is on display, along with a layered and luxurious mouthfeel and great depth of flavor. Barrel fermentation and aging in 50% new French oak brings structure and complexity to the long finish, ending rich but clean and persistent."
