“Layered and Flavorful”

Winemaking Notes

The 2016 Amici Cellars Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is a classic Chardonnay with aromatic complexity and a fine balance of richness with delicate acidity. Enticing crisp apple, Bartlett pear, lemon lime, and hazelnut aromas on this wine lead to a rich meyer lemon, and lemon oil flavor on the palate and a long mineral finish. It is richly textured with a subtle hint of butter to contrast its crisp, clean finish.

“A layered and flavorful chardonnay with lots of cooked apple and hints of lemon rind. Full body, hints of vanilla and green apple yet its full malo. Some lime undertones. Drink now.”

Wine Advocate

“The 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast (aged in 40% new French oak) features ripe melon, guava, and Golden Delicious apple notes with touches of ripe peaches, buttered toast and cashews. The palate is medium to full-bodied with loads of tropical fruit and stone fruit flavors filling the mouth, finishing lively.”
