2016 Apriori Chardonnay - Sonoma Coast
The bouquet expresses aromas of fresh citrus and apricots, revealing a wine with depth and complexity. On the palate, a silky texture creates weight and volume while the refreshing acidity frames vibrant notes of orange blossom, nectarine and honeydew. Finishing with soft undertones of vanilla and toasted almond.
Grapes were hand harvested and sorted, then whole cluster pressed. The juice was barrel fermented and malolactic fermentation was avoided. Aged 10 months in 15% new French oak.
