Black Stallion Winery Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Black Stallion Winery|
Black Stallion Estate Winery Chardonnay opens with aromas of yellow pear, crème brûlée and hints of pineapple and oak. The flavors are tantalizing notes of citrus, orange blossom and dried apricot. The Chardonnay from Los Carneros provides the bright acidity, citrus notes, and lean backbone of the wine, and the Chardonnay from the warmer growing regions contributes riper, fuller-bodied character. Vanilla aromatics from oak and floral perfume from the fruit precede ripe fruit flavors balanced with bright acidity and a rich mid-palate weight creating a multi-layered, complex wine with a lingering finish. Sip this wine on its own or pair alongside goat cheese, salads and dishes such as crab, lobster, grilled shrimp or roast chicken.
This is a full-bodied and richly layered white that dazzles in aromas of apple blossom and matchstick. The midpalate is creamy in feel, with strong flavors of pear and fig.
