Pahlmeyer Napa Chardonnay 2017
Clean floral aromas, including honeysuckle and orange blossom, mingle with notes of vanilla, brioche and shaved almonds before leading into a palate of sweet grapefruit and spice.

Wine SpectatorUnctuous, featuring succulent flavors of pear tart, dried tropical fruits, quince jelly and apple pastry, loaded with cream and spice details. The long finish is filled with light buttery accents and hints of hazelnut. Drink now through 2025. 1,900 cases made.
Wine AdvocateComposed entirely of fruit from Atlas Peak and bottled two weeks ago, the 2017 Chardonnay gives very pretty white peaches, pink grapefruit, honey-drizzled pears and lime blossoms with touches of nutmeg, marzipan and baker's yeast. The palate is medium-bodied with a slight, very pleasant phenolic grip to the texture and bags of stone fruit and pear layers, finishing on a lovely savory note.
