FEL Anderson Valley Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, North Coast, Anderson Valley|
Nose: Fresh aromatics of lemon zest, pineapple, and verbena leap from the glass of this pure expression of cool climate Chardonnay. Palate: Unencumbered by new oak and malolactic, this refreshingly bright wine focuses on the clean fruit flavors so often lost in more heavy-handed styles of Chardonnay. Flavors of quince, white nectarine, and Lisbon lemon fill the palate and crisp mouthwatering acidity punctuates the finish.
This is a delicious, no-nonsense wine that features pure fruit flavors, little obvious oak influence, good zingy acidity and excellent balance. Its strength is a slight sense of reserve that is refreshing and mouthwatering.
