TOR Carneros Chardonnay 2018
A culmination of three wonderful Chardonnay vineyards, the interplay of each vineyard has given us a beautifully svelte, balanced and harmonious wine. Elegant fruit flavors of ripe citrus, white flower and minerals are layered with brioche, nutmeg and fresh cream complexities. The palate is exciting, with a juxtaposition of dense concentration and svelte creamy texture, with balancing freshness, crispness and structural tension. Delicious right out of the gate, yet with the substance to develop beautifully over the next 5-10 years.
Please Allow 2-3 Weeks
The 2018 Chardonnay Napa Carneros wine is from three famous Chardonnay vineyards: 63% from Steve Beresini's 30-year-old, dry-farmed heritage vines, 23% from Hyde vineyard and 14% from Durell vineyard. It sings of honey-drizzled peaches, honeydew melon and fresh guava with hints of cedar chest, orange blossoms and waxed lemons. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling stone fruit and savory flavors with a refreshing backbone and toasty kick to the finish. 470 cases were made.
