Heitz Cellar 2017 Chardonnay Napa Valley

The nose of the 2017 Chardonnay begins with hints of Meyer lemon, pineapple, and freshly baked sweet apple tarts. The fresh fruit aroma is complemented by subtle notes of toasted hazelnut, honeysuckle, and white floral characteristics. Its fresh, bright acidity pleases the palate while balanced by a smooth richness that is obtained through sur lie aging. The new French oak gives the wine vanilla and baking spice flavor without overpowering the varietal flavor.

Decanter - 92 Points: "This is one of the last bastions of Napa Chardonnay that retains the ethos of winemaking from the 1970s and '80s. A blend of mainly Rutherford and Oak Knoll fruit, it undergoes no malolactic fermentation and is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Aromas of lemon meringue, key limes and orchard fruit blossoms lead to an angular, focused and pure palate. An authentic example of a past time."
