MERRYVALE 2010 CHARDONNAY "SILHOUETTE" CARNEROS 750mL

Silhouette is Merryvale's limited production, top white wine and contains their very best Napa Valley and Carneros Chardonnay fruit, including grapes from Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard and the famed Hyde Vineyard. The grapes for Silhouette are handpicked, hand sorted and whole cluster pressed before undergoing native primary and malolactic fermentation in barrels with monthly stirring on the lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this shows bright notes of tangerine, ripe peach, nectarine, and pineapple are complemented by rich notes of honey, nutmeg, toasted hazelnuts and vanilla bean crème brûlée. The lively entry leads into a concentrated, fruit driven mid-palate, with notes of citrus and ripe stone fruit. The finish is framed by notes of grilled apricots, subtle minerality and toasted brioche. This should gain complexity over the next 5-10 years.
