2020 Pride Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay | Napa & Sonoma Counties, California 750ml

The pretty flavors are dominated by quince and Bosc pear with nuances of beeswax, marjoram and gardenia adding intrigue and a lovely minerality persisting throughout. A pleasing tension between viscocity and acidity plays out on the palate with the bright acidity emerging triumphant. This flavorful, fresh, balanced wine represents everything we are aiming for in chardonnay here at Pride Mountain Vineyards.
Our intent in winemaking is to respect the elegance of this delicate grape varietal. A gentle approach is taken from start to finish, beginning with hand harvesting at night. The cold clusters are then loaded directly into the press without destemming, where a long, slow press cycle is done using very low pressure. After cold-settling under inert gas, the juice is racked to French oak barrels, 10% new, for fermentation. Malolactic fermentation is initiated in all barrels and arrested when acid balance is reached and lees stirring is done for several months prior to blending and bottling. 1945 cases produced. | Pride Mountain Vineyards

The 2020 Chardonnay slowly unfurls to reveal notes of key lime pie, yuzu and lemongrass, plus minerally suggestions of wet pebbles, chalk dust and brine. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers exhilarating tension and a zippy backbone, breaking through to fantastic citrusy intensity and a long chalky finish. | 92 points, The Wine Advocate

There are two Chardonnays from this estate. Starting with the 2020 Chardonnay, it reveals a light gold hue as well as attractive notes of honeyed citrus and subtle tropical fruits, as well as a touch of brioche and spice. Nicely textured, medium-bodied, and balanced, it's well and will keep for 2-4 years. | 90 points, Jeb Dunnuck for
