Flora Springs, Family Select Chardonnay 2016 750ML
Napa Valley, California 100% Chardonnay
Wine Maker Notes: Our 2016 Family Select Chardonnay is sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in Oakville, the Oak Knoll District and Carneros, three distinct mid- and south Napa Valley appellations. Blending wines from these regions, and fermenting the fruit in a combination of oak barrels (76%) and stainless steel tanks (24%), endows this Chardonnay with a broad spectrum of aromas, flavors and even textures. Full-bodied yet keenly balanced, this wine shows richly-fruited notes of honeydew melon, guava and pineapple layered with oak-derived hints of honey, spice and unsweetened coconut. Bi-weekly lees stirring and nearly 20% malolactic fermentation give the wine a creamy, mouth filling texture along with a hint of almond extract, but there’s enough acidity to keep the wine on a firm, bright path. This wine is classic Napa Valley Chardonnay, beautifully aromatic, boldly flavored and bearing a finish that is long and delicious.
