Benovia La Pommeraie Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Intense aromas of lemon, guava and tropical notes are accentuated by light toast and honey. Aromas vibrantly harmonize with an opulent texture, crème brulé and layered flavors of poached pear and Fuji apple on the palate which are lifted by a refreshingly mineral-laden finish.
From the Zio Tony Vineyard, this beautifully exquisite white is cohesive and complex, a vibrant harmonization of golden apple, stone fruit and lemon rind. Refined tannin and oak temper the power and opulence, celebrated by a note of crème brûlée. The finish is marked by a texture and taste of wet stone and nutmeg.
Powerfully crisp, this is filled with juicy acidity backing the white fruit and dried herbal flavors. Firm and a touch fleshy midpalate, with a finish that lingers with flinty notes. Pure and refreshing. Best from 2022 through 2026. 442 cases made.
