Staglin Family Vineyard Salus Chardonnay 2019 Napa Valley 75cl
The 2019 Staglin Family Vineyard Salus Chardonnay is rich, layered and powerful, with plenty of apricot pit, orange blossom, honey, mint, peach and spice nuances. This is the first year in which the estate incorporated a measure of larger format barrels in the blend. As always, the Staglin Chardonnay is super-distinctive for its breadth and power.
The straw-coloured opens with a bright nose of citrus zest, young pineapple, and white, waxy tropical flowers floating over freshly whipped cream speckled with shaved almonds. Flavors of lemon chiffon, D'Anjou pear and fleshy ripe cantaloupe teased with frangipane cascade across the palate, which remains pure and precise while exhibiting a delightful interplay of richness and acidity – unctuous, racy and delightful!
