Merryvale Vineyards Chardonnay Starmont Napa Valley 2015

Member Review by vin0vin0:

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.

Had a few glasses with some slightly rare Aussie beef. Smooth and round. Not much life on the pallette. Easy from start to end.

Asian pear, butter crust apple tart tatin, juicy golden pineapple, guava, Meyer Lemon, orange blossom, honeysuckle, hints of toasted hazelnut. Sweet focused entry opens to a fleshy, round, and bright mid-palate, notes of citrus, cream filled profiteroles with spun sugar, and a clean mineral driven finish.

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 mouth feel is soft, round and fleshy with a long layered finish.
