Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2020

Produced by Matthiasson

Golden Delicious apples, yellow peaches, musk melon, and honey greet the nose and persist through to the palate. Medium acidity is balanced by pleasant fleshiness, finishing very clean with a hint of minerality. ***Note: For summer months, Matthiasson will provide overnight shipping for $30 for all orders on Vinebase.***

Matthiasson

Steve and Jill Klein Mathiason started Matthiasson wines in 2003 after working for many years in the sustainable agriculture and local food movement. For us, winemaking is a natural extension of farming. Our wines are classical expressions of different grape varieties, some well-known like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and some rare like Ribolla Gialla and Refosco (originaly grown in the Friuli region of Italy). The wines are refreshing, complement food, and are moderate in alcohol. ***Note: For summer months, Matthiasson will provide overnight shipping for $30 for all orders on Vinebase.***

"While you might associate Napa Chardonnay with big oak and vanilla, Jill and Steve kept the malolactic fermentation to 2/5 of content with only native yeast. The result is a crisp refreshing mouthfeel reminiscent of Chablis style wines. Clear lemon color appearance. Medium [+] intensity aromas of crisp citrus notes of stone fruit nectarine and peach, orange blossom, grass and honey with youthful characteristics. Dry and medium [+] acidity on the palate with medium [+] intensity flavors of same with traces of wet stone minerality, full body, medium alcohol (12.0 ABV) and long finish. Very good wine, has potential for further aging. Link to full IGTV review: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQEGfKdn17s/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link "
