Forman Chardonnay 2016
A passion for a more austere Chablis style wine from this noble grape has been Forman's goal for more than 36 years. Since 1980 the Rutherford Star vineyard in the heart of the Rutherford Bench appellation has been the source of the Forman Vineyard Chardonnay. It has continued to produce consistent quality over the last 20 years. The wine emphasizes and develops a minerality which, with age, develops into a very racy and elegant food worthy wine.
|The 2016 Chardonnay is done in a slightly richer, more tropical style than in the past. Orange peel, lemon confit, pineapple, mint, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes fill out this layered Chardonnay nicely. Succulent and open-knit, the 2016 is a lovely wine to drink now and over the next handful of years.|
