2016 Grgich Hills Estate Grown Chardonnay

California | Chardonnay
"Stunningly complex with aromas of smoke, brioche, toast and a little flintiness. This is beautifully balanced with a blend of sweet apple, oyster shell and gentle sweet oak. A classy wine with such potential to develop further."

"After opening to touches of oak and reduction, this white evolves into a lovely swan, beautifully structured and deep in texture and flavor. Pear, apple and pineapple wrap around toast and dried herb, finishing strong and supple. This will do well with further aging; enjoy 2021–2026. Cellar Selection."

"A creamy and flavorful white with cooked-apple and honey aromas and flavors. Some cream, too. Full and round with lovely fruit and balance. A rich and opulent white. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now."

"The 2016 Chardonnay reveals intense white peach, pear tart and pineapple scents with touches of honeysuckle, struck flint, pie crust and honeycomb. Medium-bodied with fantastic tension and loads of citrus and tropical layers, it has a satiny texture and finishes with great length."
