Staglin Salus Estate Chardonnay 2015Staglin Family Vineyard
100% Barrel Fermentation
Napa Valley, USA
2016 was yet another superb growing season. The 2016 Salus Chardonnay displays an elemental gold color and comes out swinging. Sun-ripened lemons, poached pears and tropical blossoms pour onto a medium-bodied palate of yellow orchard fruit, honeyed mango and citrus oil spiced by touches of vanilla, clove and subtle oak. This youthful and precocious wine is drinking deliciously now and should develop additional refinement with a little time in bottle.
