The Best Yet

Grgich Hills Estate scores another direct hit with today’s 2010 Grgich Hills Napa Valley Chardonnay! This extraordinary wine is complex, balanced and delicious, with flavors and aromas that all work together in perfect harmony.

We’ve had the great fortune to showcase each vintage of this wine, dating back to the 2006 vintage. Each year that we feature it, the current vintage Grgich Chardonnay becomes a best-seller. We expect today’s 2010 vintage to shatter records, for this wine is simply incredible.

If you enjoy elegant, flavorful Chardonnay that will delight rather than bore you, we offer you today’s wine with our boldest recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light straw yellow color, from heart to edge. The wine shows some viscosity, providing clues as to how it will feel on the palate.

Smell:

Very fragrant, very aromatic, with a bold rush of lees (brioche) that melds with dark Meyer lemon, honey on fresh French bread, caramel apple, seared pear and white peach.

Taste:

Fresh, bold and zesty with delicious flavors of white peach, creamed honey, white pear, tart apple skin, Meyer lemon and lemon curd.

Finish:

Mouthwatering and creamy, with harmonious, long-sustaining fruit flavors that tail off to lemon honey. As flavors fade, a slight dryness advances across the palate.

Pairing:

Arugula salad with grilled peaches would be a delight. Add some fresh Chevre if you really want to go over the top with flavor and texture.
