Peay Vineyards Estate Chardonnay 2019

SKU: 3103000379177117Categories: ,


The even, fairly uneventful 2019 growing season resulted in delicious wines of transparency, nuance, and elegance. This is fully evident in the Estate Chardonnay. Inviting aromas of unripe pear and lemon blossoms set the stage and start your palate salivating in expectation of a graceful, not super-charged, wine. As the Chardonnay carries to the back of the mouth, flavors of green almonds and marzipan combine with yeast and chamomile notes that linger in a long, salivating after-taste. This is not a rich, fat or heavy Chardonnay, in the least. It is much more like the 2014 in fruit expression and the 2011 in body. It is lithe with notable persistence and depth. You can enjoy this Chardonnay now and also watch it age gracefully and gain even more nuance for a decade. The 2019 Estate Chardonnay has pretty aromas of apricot, spring butter, cashews, beeswax and bass tones of mushroom. The palate is medium-bodied, satiny and deeply flavored, with layer after layer of detailed fruits, and it has a very long, textural finish.
