Merryvale Chardonnay Napa Valley Starmont 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for Starmont Chardonnay is grown in our favorite cooler areas of the Napa Valley, including Oak Knoll District and Carneros, where the maritime influence keeps the focus on crisp, vibrant fruit. The fruit was carefully sorted and whole cluster pressed to preserve freshness. The light oak treatment gives a round mouth feel and improved complexity, while highlighting the fruit driven focus of the wine. The wine shows intense aromas of mandarin orange, fresh pear, melon, apple butter, spice and honey. The mouthfeel is soft, round and fleshy with a long layered finish.

Nice, not great Napa chardonnay. Not a lot of anything going on here but a bit of oak, a little lemon cream, some nuttiness and a decent finish.
