Davis Estates Hungry Blonde Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
Hungry Blonde is a stylish and elegant wine that embodies curiosity and confidence, encourages us to be around friends, relax, and live in the moment. Reminiscent of a California dream, the wine’s focused flavors suggest green apples, lemon zest and, thanks to pretty French oak, a slight graham cracker note.
The 2019 Chardonnay Hungry Blonde comes from the winery's own Carneros vineyard and includes just 15% new French oak. The result is slightly smoky, with attractive notes of grilled sweet corn and ripe peaches. Full-bodied, round, generous and easy to drink, it delivers touches of buttered toast on the finish. In the context of Napa Valley, it's a reasonably priced effort with broad appeal.
