Cakebread Cellars Reserve Chardonnay 2015

Cakebread Chardonnay Reserve is a seductive white wine that offers slightly floral aromas of creamy golden apple and honeydew melon, with complementary scents of crème brûlée. A full-bodied palate offering intense and expansive melon, peach and apple flavours accentuated by fresh, perfectly balanced acidity. The wine’s long, elegant and focused finish showcases bright, apple-y flavours with hints of citrus, mineral and oak spice. This delicious and complex Carneros Napa Valley chardonnay is eminently enjoyable now, but it will gain further complexity with another 5-7 years ageing.
