Pride Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay 2018
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Pride's 2018 Chardonnay is gorgeous. Bright, fresh and layered, it offers wonderful nuance and delineation from start to finish. Citrus confit, white flowers and a hint of tropical fruit all grace this pretty, mid-weight Chardonnay from Pride. The Chardonnay is a blend of fruit from Carneros and the Russian River, done in a style that emphasizes freshness and vivacity.
The base 2018 Chardonnay comes 77% from Napa County and 23% from Sonoma County and had a portion of the malolactic fermentation blocked. It's another richly textured, opulent white from this team that has plenty of white currant and peach fruits as well as a touch of green almonds, honeyed lime, and white flower. Nicely textured, balanced, and with a great finish, drink this pleasure bent Chardonnay over the coming 2-4 years.
