Silverado Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A nice fresh nose that delivers plenty of apple, citrus and floral notes in a slightly sweet vein. Nicely medium bodied in the mouth, this combines fresh acids with a bit of viscosity, yielding a light yet silky mouthfeel. The flavors are in the orange cream and apple end of the spectrum, with refreshing acids on the moderately long, yet simple finish that ends on pear fruit and hard mineral tones. This is a nicely styled crowd pleaser style of winemaking, it’s pretty fruity yet with bags of acid making it best suited for drinking on it’s own, or with some simple grilled fish. 87pts

The Stags Leap District is one of the smallest, yet most renowned, wine growing regions in Napa Valley. Here, Silverado Vineyards has been quietly producing world-class wines from their state-of-the-art winery for over 20 years. With grapes sourced almost entirely from Silverado’s family-owned estate vineyards, these hand-crafted wines are created in small lots with extreme care. They express richness, elegance and age-worthiness. Silverado wines are unique - one-of-a-kind blends of location, philosophy and winemaking style. The Mediterranean-style stone winery, established in 1981, stands on a knoll above the Silverado Trail in the heart of the Stags Leap District. Silverado is a legendary name from the early mining days. Today it symbolizes the Miller family’s long term commitment to the future of Napa Valley wine. Read less

Delicate and subtle nose with creamy connotations and hints of salty, tropical fruit rather like grilled pineapple. The entry is crisp and possessing good minerality. The flavors are a bit austere and there's a slight hint of racy acidity and some effervescence on the tongue. Flavors lean toward apple and pear with young pineapple and guava. Some green notes. Slight oak, but more green than toasty. Perhaps it needs to open more, but it's just alright by me. It finishes very salty, super dry and woody. 81 pts. 4/14/13

Deep golden color with a light gold rim. Aromas of papaya, guava, pineapple, and citrus are framed by a touch of oak. Buttery and rich on the palate, this offers the classic California chardonnay profile of popcorn, pineapple and vanilla while also s... Alex Lallos. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Silverado Vineyards Chardonnay 750ml

Tasting Notes - Consistent with Silverado's retro-California style of Chardonnay, this wine has aromas of citrus, vanilla, pineapple with floral undertones and a creme brulee note to the oak component. A light to medium body with vanilla and apple flavors round out the moderately long finish.

The 2007 Chardonnay has copious lime and lemon oil as well as some orange blossom and honeysuckle notes. The wine has a greenish hue to its color, and shows little evidence of any noticeable oak other than some subtle spice. It has zesty acidity, medium to full body, and a long, pure finish. Drink it over the next 3-4 years. This is a strong group of wines from Silverado, and certainly a great deal of credit must go to winemaker Jonathan Emmerich.

Tart and lean, with citrus flavors just nudging into green apples. Oak adds richness and viscosity; most of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation, but it's still an angular Chardonnay with a lemony finish.

Leesy scents of grape skins in the initial aromas and finish lend their juiciness to the maple syrup flavors of oak. Malty and long, for grilled port.

Bright yellow gold. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Vanilla and stone fruit aromas lead an elegant palate with bright fruit flavors and smoky oak accents.
