2019 VINE CLIFF LOS CARNEROS NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY

$39.99

Vine Cliff Chardonnay could be the reference-standard for perfectly balanced, intensely powerful Chardonnay…  It is an absolutely pure expression of concentrated fruit with just enough oak and butter characteristics to appeal to anyone that tries it.  If you enjoy the Best Napa Valley Chardonnay, trust me on this one, and Grab a Case or Two.

From Wine Enthusiast, “With a crisp entry of oyster shell, Meyer lemon and high-toned acidity, this wine remains bright and vibrant in the glass, with a bite of juicy green apple and well-integrated oak. It shows complexity and structure within its lively framework of balance and length.” WINE ENTHUSIAST 91 POINTS

*There’s a delicious salinity with a hint of butter and Lemon, that’s makes it a perfect Chardonnay to pair with Lobster or Crab Cakes. My ultimate pairing would be Halibut stuffed with Alaskan King Crabs Legs with loads of butter. For a fun pairing, try it with popcorn and your favorite Movie.

2019 VINE CLIFF LOS CARNEROS NAPA VALLEY CHARDONNAY

This time of year, we start our tastings with nearly two dozen Chardonnays, and see every style from extremely rich, luscious and buttery offerings, to shimmering, unoaked crisp and minerally, Chablis-like examples.  Somewhere in the middle of those very opposite styles you’ll find a perfect balance of concentrated, pristinely focused fruit that perfectly balances the elegant oak and subtle buttery characteristics.  When we find one of these, it really stands out in a crowd of countless others.

Vine Cliff has a terrific reputation of quality and consistency and is one of Napa Valley’s historic wineries, being established in 1871.  This Chardonnay comes from their  twelve-acre Estate vineyard in the heart of the Los Carneros appellation, an area that’s absolutely perfect for producing perfectly ripe, incredibly balanced Chardonnay fruit.  The fruit was pressed long and slow in a Champagne style to maximize freshness and you’ll taste it in this brilliant Napa Valley Chardonnay.
