One Of California's Top Five Chardonnays
If you have enjoyed Kistler, Aubert, or Kongsgaard Chardonnays, you have likely enjoyed the opulence of Pahlmeyer Chardonnay.
"For more than three decades, the Pahlmeyer family has been perfecting its formula for the quintessential California Chardonnay... All the grapes for this wine come from Atlas Peak, Napa’s highest-altitude appellation, where Pahlmeyer’s estate vineyards are located.
There, elevations range from 1,500 to 2,100 feet, where cool nights foster the wine's natural acidity.
The 2021 Pahlmeyer Chardonnay fills the room with vivacious grapefruit, white peach and lemon tart scents with touches of roasted nut, brioche, orange blossoms, beeswax and shaved almonds. The palate delivers super-intense citrus flavors with loads of savory and satiny texture.
Pahlmeyer's Chardonnay signature is the wine's brilliant juxtaposition of grandeur and bright acidity. Given the vineyard's elevation, the fruit is able to blend classic Napa Valley opulence with Burgundian balance and restraint.
Pahlmeyer is one of California's top five Chardonnays. It is perfect for Thanksgiving to accompany turkey, gravy, and rich stuffing. It also pairs magnificently with pan-seared salmon and roasted vegetables.
