Description

Chamisal Monterey County Chardonnay 2017

Chamisal Monterey County Chardonnay is a beautiful example of Monterey County. Full whiff of toasted oak and crème brûlée on the nose. Fruit-driven and full-bodied on the palate with a bright acidity and broad texture. Meyer lemon juice, baked apple and ripe pineapple with layers of rich creaminess and a hint of buttered popcorn. Closes with a clean and acidic finish.

100% Chardonnay. The grapes come from the Mistral Vineyard just north of San Lucas where the Salinas Valley narrows and the winds are at their most extreme. The Monterey bay winds funnel through this site, where the vineyard sits on a southwest facing bench. The ample ripeness and maritime influence of this vineyard make this wine a classic representation of the appellation.

Vinification using traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques. This includes whole cluster pressing, barrel fermentations, batonnage, native yeast, and malolactic fermentation. The wine matures for 10 months in 40% new French oak. They utilise press cuts to fine-tune quality and vinify in many small lots, allowing them to assemble the Monterey Chardonnay with a focus on quality and richness.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

WILFRED WONG OF  – 91 POINTS

The 2017 Chamisal Vineyards Chardonnay is an excellent wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rich, firm, and lasting on the palate. Pair its aromas and flavors of ripe apples and creamy notes with shellfish in a savory, cream-based sauce.

 The 2017 Chardonnay Monterey County opens with notes of gunflint and toast over baked apples, yellow pears, popcorn and a tropical tinge. The palate is medium-bodied and rounded with an über spicy, fresh fruit profile lifted by mouthwatering acidity, and it finishes long and toasty. This has an appealing yin-yang of savory and bright citrus character.

 Broad and creamy aromas are cut by lemon juice and crushed chalk on the approachable nose of this bottling. The smoky quality extends to the palate, where toasted almond, ripe peach and salted lemons make for a mouthwatering experience.
