FALCONE CHARDONNAY, SANTA MARIA VALLEY 2015
NVWE Notes: Style and elegance are evident in this wine’s well evolved aromas of tarte tatin, Asian pear, lemon curd, pineapple core, yellow rose, mock orange, vanilla wafer and baking spices. It is as stylish yet even more expressive on the palate, where the texture is both gently tongue-coating and quietly piquant. Baked apple and lemon flavors dominate, while pretty accents of vanilla wafer, nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom and hints of white pepper and minerals join-in and carry through a supple, lingering finish. Ready to enjoy, it should prove a near-perfect companion to sautéed or baked fish and fowl. 322 cases produced.
This bottling of clone 15 is light in color and offers vanilla, sea salt, caramel and lightly toasted marshmallow on the nose along with lime blossoms, lemon curd and buttered toast. The palate starts with a sizzle of acidity then offers green apples, Anjou pear, squeezed lime and kiwi, with riper peach showing toward the finish.
