duckhorn napa valley chardonnay 2021 750ml

$29.99

Winemaker Notes

This tantalizing Chardonnay begins with alluring aromas of lemon cream, orange blossom, Key lime and candied pineapple. On the palate, a lush, silky mouthfeel and energetic acidity frame lively orchard-fruit flavors of pear and white peach, with hints of brioche emerging on the long, focused finish.

 

Production

Despite an unusually dry winter and warm spring, budbreak was delayed due to light rain in March. The overall lack of rainfall led to light clusters and small berries, which resulted in reduced yields and great concentration. Harvest began on August 5th with Semillon, and early heat generated a fast and furious first few weeks of picking. A much-needed mid-September cool-down allowed for sugars to realign with flavor development. Moderate temperatures continued throughout the rest of the season, providing additional hangtime for the grapes. Our last red grapes were harvested before the rains in late October, resulting in beautiful wines that are dense, pure and polished.

Inviting aromas of pear, lemon peel and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with steady acidity and bright fruit. Fresh, silky and elegant. Drink now.

 

WW91, Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

"COMMENTARY: The 2021 Duckhorn Vineyards Chardonnay is pleasing from start to finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of tart and ripe apples, light chalky notes, and an accent of oak. Serve it with a well-spiced, oven-roasted chicken. (Tasted: July 18, 2022, San Francisco, CA)"
