The palate delivers what the bouquet promises; citrus fruits, fig and melon
flavours along with a clean, mineral acidity and a touch of lemon zest.
Texturally, it is delicate, with a creamy mid palate & integrated oak. The
Clare Valley parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness whilst the Margaret River
component contributes restrained green fruit notes that are typical of this
region. Overall, the wine has a great palate line & length which lingers long
after the wine is consumed.
The Napa Cellars 2016 Chardonnay displays the classic Napa Valley Chardonnay
Characteristics indicative of this region. Aromas of peach, bright apple and
graham cracker excite the senses. Flavours of pear, creme fraiche and pie crust
are complemented by a creamy texture with balance acidity and a nice, lingering
finish of creme brulee and white peach. This is the perfect wine to pair with
a camembert French cheese plate drizzled with local honey and almond halves, or
with panna cotta topped with fresh berries for dessert.
