2016 Apriori Chardonnay - Antica Vineyard - Napa Valley
This elegant Chardonnay displays aromas of citrus and pear. This wine is rich, yet shows fresh flavors of lemon pie, white peaches with a hint of baking spice and toasted vanilla. It has a crisp acidity with a smooth velvety texture.
Grapes were hand harvested, sorted, and then whole cluster pressed. The juice was barrel fermented and underwent partial malolactic fermentation. Aged for 15 months in 33% new oak.
