Magnum-2013 Walker Hill Chardonnay
A 1.5 liter bottle of our 2013 Walker Hill Vineyard Chardonnay.
The 2013 season at Walker was a near carbon copy of 2012, giving us another delicious vintage that brought out the stone fruits and a touch of tropical exotica to highlight the vineyard’s trademark citrus character. The nose entices with its Meyer lemon crème brulee essence, with a bit of extra mango/banana creaminess. The toasty caramel notes give way to a mélange of citrus as it sits in the glass, accented by a whiff of ginger. The mouth is fresh with lemon and tangerine, both bracing with its bright acidity and rounded out by its butterscotch notes. This combination of lively brightness and richness make it a perfect match for creamy seafood dishes, but we mostly catch Dan just drinking it on its own.
