Buy Chateau Montelena Chardonnay
Rich and intense aromas of lemon,lime leaf, citrus flowers, honey and slightly nutty baked pie crust. The creamy texture is nicely complemented by expressions of white stone fruits (nectarines and peaches) and Granny Smith green apple with hints of marzipan on the finish.
Antonio Galloni 92 points - You know you’re doing something right when, after 45 years of Chardonnay winemaking, they name a California Chardonnay style after your winery, the “Montelena style.” In short, it means a non-malolactic, minimally oaked Chardonnay. This estate has long made one of the best examples of a quiet, restrained Chardonnay that ages for 20 or more years. Montelena’s 2012 Chardonnay possesses zesty acidity as well as hints of white currants, delicate wood, tangerine oil and spice. Long and zesty with no noticeable oak (despite its barrel aging), it should drink well for 10-15 years.

CHATEAU MONTELENA WINERY 2012 MONTELENA CHARDONNAY NAPA "White flowers, apples, pears and spices all meld together in a gracious, impeccable Chardonnay. The 2012 is beautifully bright and focused, yet also has plenty of textural richness and layers of flavor. I especially like the nuance and detail in the 2012. This is a fabulous showing from Montelena." Antonio Galloni Vinous Media 92 points Drink 2016-20
