Lynmar Estate Welcomes the Family Club
Quail Hill Vineyard Chardonnay, 2016
93 points, Wine Enthusiast
Lynmar Estate’s 45-acre Quail Hill Vineyard has five distinct blocks of Chardonnay. The largest, Block 14, was planted in 1974 to the Rued Chardonnay Clone, known for its stunning floral notes. The remaining vines are Old Wente Clone, which add a weighty round richness to this release. A clear pale straw color in the glass, the Quail Hill Chardonnay emanates vibrant aromas of fresh lemon curd, Jasmine flower, honeycomb and tangerine peel. On the palate, flavors of lemon meringue and kiwi emerge leading to hints of nutmeg and wet stone. Bright acidity carries into a long finish highlighting notes of lemongrass and pie crust.
Pairing Suggestions: Gnocci, Carrot Risotto, Crab Cakes, Scallops in Saffron Sauce
