2016 Renaceau Chardonnay
The 2016 Renaceau Vineyard Chardonnay is an elegant and restrained offering from the hot and dry 2016 vintage. Out of the gate, the nose displays beautiful aromas of juicy white peach, fresh-cut tangerines, and dried pineapple before rushing into notes of vanilla and barrel spice. On the palate, this wine shows bright natural acidity with a warming level of alcohol and medium body. Similar to the nose, characters of white peach and pineapple are found with the addition of yellow grapefruit and dried apricot before with a lingering vanilla finish. A smooth drinker, enjoy this well chilled. Will continue to evolve over the next 7-12 years.
