Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Chardonnay 2020

Size: 0
The 2020 vintage was especially phenomenal for Chardonnay. A moderate winter rainfall and warm and dry spring set the stage for an excellent growing season with average canopies. During the summer, Napa Valley experienced cool mornings and hot days. This accelerated ripening led to Chardonnay with optimal fruit flavors and fresh acidity. All Chardonnay vineyards were harvested in August, making 2020 an unusually early vintage for Sequoia Grove. Only 2,906 cases made, 90 Points from Wine Enthusiast.
Aromas of toasted almond, tropical pineapple, and brioche dominate the nose followed by hints of tarragon, and eucalyptus flower. On the palate are flavors of bright lemon curd, candied walnuts, and an intriguing mineral component. This Chardonnay is beautifully creamy with a luscious bright acidity on the finish, reminiscent of a lemon tart. Serve slightly chilled.
