Banshee Chardonnay 2016$28.00Add to cart
The 2016 vintage officially was the last of the drought vintages that began in 2012. While they were all marked by long hot summers and early harvests, both ’15 and ’16 featured lower yields than the preceding years. The upside to low moderate yields is that the grapes that were there picked up added levels of intensity and depth. This vintage was sourced from a variety of vineyards in the Sonoma Coast. These vineyards tended to deliver fully developed flavors at relatively high natural acidity, giving remarkable length and verve. This wine leans towards orchard fruit showing both apple and pear but also hints of tropical fruits and vanilla bean. In the mouth the wine is moderate weight but packs extraordinary depth of flavor, echoing the aroma with fuji apple, meyer lemon, sage and vanilla panna cotta. The finish is all energy with mouthwatering citrus notes.
