Noble Vines 446 Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
446 Chardonnay showcases vibrant aromas of ripe peach, citrus, honey and a touch of vanilla, wrapped around juicy flavors of tropical fruits, honeydew melon and lemon zest, and framed by slight hints of butter and spice on the finish. Medium-bodied with a creamy mid-palate, this wine can be enjoyed on its own or with soft cheeses, roast fowl or pasta or salads.
This is a smoky bottling, with wafts of hickory and oak overcoming the lemon blossoms, yet remaining quite inviting. The palate starts floral, with honeysuckle and orange blossom flavors, then moves toward lemon curd and sandalwood on the finish.
