Plumpjack-Chardonnay-Estate-2016

Plumpjack, Chardonnay Estate , 2016

PlumpJack’s Chardonnay grapes are sourced from two vineyards in the Napa Valley – one in Los Carneros and the other in St. Helena. The cooler Carneros site imparts this wine with fresh green apple, Bosc pear, and lemon zest on the nose, while the warmer St. Helena site lends some tropical and melon notes. The Carneros vineyard also gives this wine a beautiful, bright, lively acidity, which is balanced by the creamy, rich texture of the St. Helena fruit. The touch of oak adds subtle layers to the nose and palate with traces of toasted almonds, vanilla, flint, and spice. Lack of malolactic fermentation retains the bright, lively malic acid, which helps to accentuate the fruit on the palate, and gives this wine its balance and drive.
