Artesa Carneros Chardonnay
Description: Winemaker's Notes
The Carneros Chardonnay is first and foremost about aromatics, and the techniques used are designed to retain the signature Carneros aromas of lemon-citrus and white blossom while accentuating the minerality and vivid, fresh fruit flavors of citrus and stone fruits in the wine. Partial barrel fermentation, malolactic and lees stirring create layers, imparting hints of cedar andhoney and wrapping the flavors in a rich, generously textured mouthfeel.

by Virginie Boone
Vibrant swatches of lemon peel dominate on the nose and palate in this wine, offering a near-tingling mouthfeel of acidity, inching toward the extreme. Pear and apple otherwise figure into the mix, before the seamless finish smoothes things out. (11/1/2015) 88
