2016 Arroyo Seco Chardonnay
Arroyo Seco Chard is our all time best-selling white wine! A universally loved crowd-pleaser for all occasions.
The super fresh nose of honeysuckle, pear, and apple gains weight and complexity with a bit of air, adding papaya and orange creamsicle to the mix. Creamy and supple on entry, this wine really hits the “umami” button, with rich orange sherbet and vanilla notes riding that honeyed beam of acidity I find so thrilling about the Chardonnays from this region. Robust yet wonderfully complex even at this young age, it finishes in long waves of ripe fruit and creamy vanilla. Yum.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Citrus, Tropical, Vanilla
Lot 576 is as good an offering as the best we’ve ever offered from this region. Sourced from a winery with over half a century of experience crafting $20+ Chardonnay in Arroyo Seco and barrel aged in mostly new American oak with full malolactic fermentation, this wine is immediately your go-to candidate for “most versatile wine in the cellar”. Every dinner party, picnic, family gathering, wedding, or any other year-round occasion will find Lot 576 to be a mouthwatering, universally appreciated wine that never leaves a host (or guest, for that matter) asking themselves the question: “Will this make everyone happy?”
