Venge Vineyards Maldonado Vineyard Napa Valley Chardonnay Dijon Clones 2012

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2012 Chardonnay Maldonado Vineyard Dijon Clones (375 cases produced) boasts lots of honeyed citrus, white peach and honeysuckle characteristics, a green-ish hue to its color, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and outstanding freshness as well as acidity. It should age well for 5–6 years.

Made from 100% Dijon Clones, this is hugely expressive, gorgeously aromatic and full-figured. Balanced and well-integrated, it boasts a core of citrus and pear. While heavy in aromas of toast and honey, it is surprisingly light on the tongue, with a sneaky tropical element of pineapple and coconut that’s entirely rewarding.
