MERRYVALE 2011 CHARDONNAY CARNEROS 750mL

Merryvale’s Carneros Chardonnay comes from the same vineyards as their Silhouette bottling; Stanly Ranch and Hyde Vineyards. The main difference is with the Carneros bottling is the time spent in barrel (here, it is 10 months) and the percentage of new wood (42%). The grapes are carefully sorted, whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented, with the first seven months on primary lees, and is stirred monthly until blending. As a result, this vibrant gold colored Chardonnay mineral/wet stone aromas along with notes of tangerine, orange blossom mango, papaya, fresh pineapple, baked apple, pear, and vanilla. Framed by sweet toasty oak, this has a round, fleshy mid-palate, great fruit concentration, lively acidity, and an elegant finish.
