White Rock Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Bright, forceful and slightly reductive, this white is aged less than a year in neutral French oak, allowing the fruit to speak and offer richness on the midpalate. Gingerbread and lemongrass flavors accent its essential core of green apple fruit.
The 2014 Chardonnay from White Rock Vineyards offers attractive minerality, hints of pineapple and orange rind, medium body, a discreet use of oak, and excellent fruit and purity. It could easily pass for a premier cru Chablis in a blind tasting. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
