Chateau Montelena Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, North Coast, Napa County|
This wine continues to excite from vintage to vintage. With such skill at the wheel, the slight turns and twists every year are a joy to experience. The nose holds you in place with soft wafts of ripe green apple and melon. The soft, elegant fruit is cleaved by a refreshing run of minerality rushing into your senses. On the palate elegance and depth is the theme, with that softness of the fruit felt on the nose carrying through, giving the wine a subtle weight. The natural acidity flits through the wine: one moment you are perceiving depth and the next refreshment. This is still an American Chardonnay done right.
