Clos Du Val Napa Valley Chardonnay
Here's a solid style of chardy out of the Napa Valley that would be great with roast chicken, or even something a bit richer like pork or game birds. It has a fair bit of impact on the nose, with aromas of peaches, apples, pears and melons, with licks of butter and vanilla oak. The palate is more medium-bodied and a tad rich, with stone fruit and citrus flavours, licks of subtle butterscotch and vanilla, friendly acidity, and a smooth finish.
Flavors of rich, tropical fruit dominate this beautiful 2010 Chardonnay sourced from our Carneros Estate vineyards in southern Napa Valley. The nose offers essences of baked apple and pear with ripe, expressive flavors of peach and apricot. The mouthfeel is full and rich, accented by bright citrus and a hint of oak, with a long finish.
