The 2016 vintage of Mayacamas Chardonnay - our team's fourth as winemakers - continues the legacy of fresh and powerful mountain chardonnay. Aromas of Meyer lemon, river rock, vanilla bean, and honeysuckle highlight the nose. On the palate, the wine strikes a balance of richness and focus - mouthwatering acidity and flinty minerality lead into flavors of lemon curd, almond and passion fruit.
From the mighty dry-farmed site within the secluded appellation, this incredible wine is expressive in tones of flint, fig, pear and lemon peel, with lasting acidity that brightens and freshens the palate. Medium bodied, it's soft in feel yet structured, balanced and complex.
The 2016 Chardonnay is fabulous. A vivid, textured wine, the 2016 possesses remarkable finesse and intensity in all of its dimensions. Lemon oil and white flowers are amped up by the natural intensity of these old vines. The 2016 was fermented and aged in neutral oak, with no malolactic fermentation. Mayacamas is setting a new standard for what California Chardonnay can be. Don't miss it.
Focused and pure-tasting, showing savory notes to the intense green apple, Asian pear and citrus flavors, with hints of slate and spice on the finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay Napa Valley reveals delicate notions of lemon drops, fresh pears, baking bread and nutmeg with hints of honeysuckle and mandarin peel. Medium-bodied, crisp, refreshing and compellingly understated, it offers great restraint and a mineral-laced finish.
