[ Home > Darioush Chardonnay Signature 2011 ]|
Chardonnay fruit grown in Darioush’s cool vineyard sites in southern Napa Valley, Oak Knoll and Carneros develops slowly and evenly, enabling winemaking techniques which emphasize minerality, texture, acidity and fruit concentration. The 2006 vintage achieves a delicate balance, offering vibrant citrus and stone fruit flavors paired with a crisp mineral structure.
Bright aromas of nectarine, lemon zest and vanilla introduce this ethereal and impeccably balanced Chardonnay. The mineral-laden mid-palate possesses fruit forward flavors of d’Anjou pear, Braeburn apple and ripe stone fruit which lingers and finishes with hints of nutmeg and toasted hazelnut.
