Bravium Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
This bright and balanced wine perfectly reflects the cool-climate Russian River Valley vineyards where it was grown. Brilliant medium-gold color, with honey, pear, apple, pineapple, lemon oil, and white flowers aromas, and a judicious framing of vanillin oak. The wine opens with crisp pineapple and mango fruit flavors that turn into apple and pastry on the full-bodied mid-palate. A finely textured, invigorating mouthfeel, with medium acidity, turns into flinty minerality on the ripe and bouncy finish of this lively Chardonnay.
This is a versatile, well-balanced, well-made wine. It's medium to full bodied and offers tempting cream and vanilla aromas, mouthfilling pear and vanilla flavors and a rich texture supported by good acidity.
Ripe melon and dried apple flavors show notes of cooking spices, with a custardy finish. Drink now. 3,535 cases made.
