Banshee Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose of this wine leans towards the orchard fruit range showing both apple and pear but also hints of tropical fruits and vanilla bean. In the mouth the wine is moderate weight but packs extraordinary depth of flavor, echoing the aroma with fuji apple, meyer lemon, sage and vanilla panna cotta. The finish is all energy with mouthwatering citrus notes. Barrel aged 8 months in French oak (50% new). Alcohol 13.5%. Not yet reviewed; 2015 vintage rated 89 points by Antonio Galloni (Vinous): The 2015 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is rich, creamy and voluptuous, all the result of a vintage with tiny yields and warm temperatures. Readers should expect an ample, almost flamboyant wine built on yellow stone fruit and tropical notes. This is an especially rich wine for Banshee. Then again, that's 2015. Drink: 2017-2019.
