Pahlmeyer Jayson Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
This silky-smooth wine offers an appealing lift of crisp tropical fruit and subtle touches of oak for a vibrant, layered Chardonnay. Notes of lemon meringue, poached pear, crushed granite and fresh pineapple juice offer incredible structure to the palate. Deeper into this well-textured wine are richer hints of butterscotch, almond cream, salted caramel and crème brûlée, finishing bright and playful. Pair this inviting Chardonnay with a grilled pork chop in a mustard-thyme cream sauce with a side of rosemary-herb roasted potatoes, or with a cheese pairing of aged gouda with dried apricots.
Plush, with lots of tropical accents to the cream-filled white fruit flavors. There's buoyant acidity midpalate, with mineral nuances, followed by buttered toast notes on the finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,400 cases made.
