2017 Mayacamas Chardonnay Mt. Veeder

$49.95
WS92VN90-93

Old-vine, non-malo mountain Chardonnay that is built to age simply doesn’t get any better than this. Give this diamond-cut Chardonnay at least 2-5 years in your cellar before regaling your guests with it. Galloni calls it “more textural richness and softer curves than is the norm. Pliant and generous, the 2017 is shaping up to be quite promising.”

Vinous

The 2017 Chardonnay has all of the structural underpinnings that are so typical of this wine, but with a bit more textural richness and softer curves than is the norm. Pliant and generous, the 2017 is shaping up to be quite promising.

Wine Spectator

Vibrantly fresh, with well-proportioned flavors of McIntosh apple, Asian pear and dried quince, backed by fresh acidity. The minerally finish lingers with good snap.
