Barnett Vineyards Sangiacomo Chardonnay 2011 Carneros 750ml

Barnett Vineyards Sangiacomo Chardonnay 2011 Carneros 750ml

Chardonnay from Carneros, California, USA

Cellar/Tasting Notes
We are thrilled to be offering Barnett Vineyards wines again, after a hiatus out of the New York market. Barnett is such a small, high quality boutique winery that we feel privileged to be able to offer both a single vineyard Pinot Noir and a single vineyard Chardonnay.
The 2011 San Giacomo is 100% Chardonnay, entirely barrel fermented and left on the lees for 10 months before bottling. Some 80% of the wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation, which helps it retain extra layers of freshness and taste: apple and citrus (see the tasting note below).
Robert Parker on Barnett Vineyards: "It is hard to believe that Barnett Vineyards is already 27 years old. Located on a beautiful hillside high on Spring Mountain, they have branched out from their original Cabernet program to include Chardonnays and, more recently, Pinot Noirs, all of which merit attention."

Chardonnay Sangiocomo Tasting Notes:
The 2011 is an extremely layered Chardonnay, with elements of honeycomb and creme brulee on the nose, surrounded by tropical elements of guava and ripe kiwi. Typical to the Sangiacomo, minerality is apparent in the background. The richness on the palate is surrounded with flavors of vanilla bean and honeysuckle. The wine's viscosity is balanced well with the fresh malic acid that comes through on the finish. This Chardonnay is fresh and vibrant now but will develop additional complexity over the next 5 to 6 years.
