MELVILLE Chardonnay 'Verna's' 2013

This Chardonnay was sourced from Melville’s Los Alamos estate, and is a combination of clones 4, 76, 95, 96 and selections of Mount Eden and Hudson. This gorgeous wine begins with an inviting bouquet of citrus, nutmeg, kumquat and roasted hazelnuts along with hints of crème brûlée. The palate is lithe and deep, showing flavors of white peach, vanilla cream and sweet toasted nuances. This is drinking beautifully at this juncture, showing wonderful poise, although a bit leaner than the 'Estate' Chardonnay. (Best 2017-2023) - August, 2017 (OB)
