Sterling Vineyards Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our Napa Valley Chardonnay shows graceful, elegant fruit and fragrant, sweet oak spices. The gentle nature of the fruit from this vintage allows the influence of the barrels to shine through, lending rich caramel and vanilla notes to ripe tropical fruit, citrus and floral aromas. The palate is layered with golden apples and peaches and pierced by a bright streak of citrus that carries into the long and crisp finish. Poached fish, grilled chicken or light spring-vegetable pasta would be a nice complement to this wine." -Winery

Balanced and complex, our 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay layers fruit from several vineyards in the AVA, marrying the lush, bold ripeness of mid-valley with the richness and depth of Carneros. Bright, golden fruit opens the nose, rounded with notes of honey, caramel, baking spice and toast. A bold entry of lemons and ripe apple develops weight and viscosity as it evolves through the mouth. The barrel contribution leaves an almost-sweet almond impression across the finish. Displaying true Napa style, this well-poised wine is perfect for all occasions and will pair with a variety of foods. - WineryBarrel Aging: 12 to 14 monthsAlcohol: 14.5%Acidity: 5.4 g/LpH: 3.61
