Pahlmeyer Napa Valley Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
The 2019 Pahlmeyer Chardonnay is crisp and refreshingly vibrant, greeting you with generous aromas of pear blending with subtle hints of anise. The palate is expressive and full, as seared Meyer lemon and butterscotch meld and mingle to build a tension and balance in the wine that requests another sip for further investigation. The wine’s acidity is centered and focused, creating a juicy texture that is balanced by a savory roasted almond finish. Long and evolving. Try the 2019 Pahlmeyer Chardonnay alongside roasted chicken with a simple garlic-Meyer lemon pan sauce.
This is a fantastic young chardonnay with crushed-stone, dried apple and pear and light vanilla-bean character. It’s full-bodied, but very tight with firmness and energy at the end. The cement and stone character is intense on the finish, giving spiciness to the fruit. Drink or hold.
