Rombauer Chardonnay 2017
Enticing aromas of vanilla, melon and mango are layered with apricot, creme brulee, butter and a slight minerality. Those scents are echoed as flavors on the creamy, rich palate, along with peach, pie crust and baking spices. The long, smooth finish is marked by mouthwatering acidity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chardonnay features compelling spiced apples, almond croissant, honeyed peaches and fresh baked pear tart notions on the nose. Medium-bodied with a satiny texture, the palate delivers plenty of peaches and savory layers with a racy line and mineral-tinged finish.
Wine SpectatorA creamy and plush style, with plenty of pastry notes to the pear tart and baked apple flavors. Hints of nutmeg show on the broad finish. Drink now through 2022. 190,000 cases made.
