2018 MALDONADO LOS OLIVOS CHARDONNAY

$42.00 $39.99 $39.99

Maldonado Chardonnay is the delicious result of nearly four decades spent immersed in Napa Valley agriculture, including managing iconic vineyards like Newton Cellars. The results speak volumes, and fruit from their remarkable vineyard has attracted top producers like Venge and B Cellars to craft Chardonnay from it. The Maldonado’s passion for the grape is transparent in their flagship Los Olivos bottling, made in a richly layered style with beautiful weight, balance, and gloriously defined fruit. At around $40, it’s merely one of the best California style Chardonnays from Napa Valley.

The Los Olivos Vineyard is near the Southeastern edge of Napa Valley, in a cool, windswept region that experiences strong maritime influences from the Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay. These influences funnel through the Coastal Mountain ranges, and allow the grapes a long growing-season, with temperatures cool enough to maintain acidity and structure.

Maldonado perfectly balances nectar-like texture with balanced acidity and detailed candied lemon, tropical fruits, and vanilla bean. The wine team barrel ferments the grapes, and then the wine is aged sur lie, which contributes to this wine’s incredible richness and buttery aromas.

Description

2018 MALDONADO LOS OLIVOS CHARDONNAY

“Aromatic and inviting with subtle mineral notes, guava, citrus and a hint of spice. A depth of flavors unfolds on the palette with a clean and elegant entrance. Juicy apricot, ripe bosc pear, lemon curd, brown sugar and a hint of toasted oak bring the wine into an elegant long finish. This Chardonnay is the perfect balance between lite and rich; finding ripe fruit with good acidity from the cool growing region of Jameson Canyon. A richer layer from 100% Malolactic fermentation gives the weight and creamy component that puts the Los Olivos Vineyard in a league of its own.”
