Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Langtry Chardonnay hails from the picturesque ten acre Genevieve Vineyard, which sits in the heart of Guenoc Valley. The result of many years of research, the small cluster Dijon clones 76 and 96, proved to show exceptional wines. The nose displays enticing aromas of apple pie, honey and vanilla. Soft on the entry, there is a creamy texture and the balanced acidity shows off the complex apricot and toasted almond finish.
Vineyard Notes
This ten acre, valley floor Chardonnay block sits a quarter mile east of the Langtry house on fairly shallow, gravelly clay loam soils with high magnesium and low nutrient content that limits vine vigor and crop levels. Very cool nights allow for excellent acidity and rich, fully mature fruit with abundant flavor and character.
