Alexander Valley Vineyards 2022 Estate Chardonnay

The 2022 is a full bodied, well balanced Chardonnay with loads of fresh fruit flavors. Aromas of apple, pear, vanilla along with floral notes and hint of oak from the minimal barrel aging fill the glass. Bright flavors of pear, apple, juicy peach and tropical fruits along with slight citrus notes are balanced by the rich mouthfeel.

The nose of this straw-yellow Chardonnay is expressive, with aromas of clove-poached Anjou pear and honeysuckle. The palate then turns to flavors of chalky minerality, crème brûlée, fresh Fuji apple and juicy melon. An aromatic and vibrant finish lingers for the next minute or so.
