Sterling Vineyard's Chardonnay Napa Valley 2016 750mL JS91 Points-James Suckling
The Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay is a luminous, light gold color in the glass with fragrant aromas of fresh lemon crème, citrus, crisp apple and toasted hazelnut. The inviting nose leads to a richly textured palate with flavors of citrus, stone fruit and a honey almond character. The wine is well-balanced between an elegant, creamy roundness and a line of bright acidity. The pleasing finish is persistent and flavorful.
Aromas of fresh cloves, apricot pie, cooked apples, clementine and orange blossom. Medium to full body, loads of fleshy stone fruit and a textured finish.
