An elegant styled Chardonnay from Premier Napa winery Provenance. "The first Chardonnay from Provenance, this is sourced from outstanding sites like the Sangiacomo and Winery Lake vineyards, ... in the cool Carneros AVA. Barrel-aged in French oak for a year, this weighted white lends an elegant mouthfeel thanks to aging on the lees. Aromas of lemon curd and white peach are instantly attractive and alluring. The combination of minerality and toasted oak is well-integrated, forming a duality with a crème-brûlée effect and bright acidity. It’s a job well done."-Tasting Panel 93 points
Barrel aged 100% and aged for 12 months in 35% new French oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Carneros gives up intense notes of guava, pineapple and honeydew with hints of toasty oak and allspice. Medium-bodied, it delivers bags of lively melon-inspired flavors with a spicy finish.
