RouteStock Route 121 Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
In an effort to keep the wine showing the exotic freshness that it showed in tank and barrel, we stopped malo-lactic fermentation about 75% of the way through, thus retaining higher acidity, freshness and vitality. The wine shows a beautiful light straw color with seductive aromas of lemon curd, lemon thyme and ginger. The wine fills the pallet beautifully with a brightness combined ever so nicely with richness that also shows the Carneros regions strengths to the best degree. This gives way to an unusually long finish. The exotic flavors of this well-balanced chardonnay are of Meyer lemon rind, jasmine tea and just a hint of freshly baked bread that come together to deliver a wine of richness and power, yet with an amazing freshness.
