PlumpJack Winery, founded by then California Governor Gavin Newsom and composer/philanthropist Gordon Getty, sits squarely in the heart of Napa Valley's renowned Oakville region, surrounded by a 42-acre estate vineyard highly-regarded for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 Reserve Chardonnay is sourced from vineyards in St. Helena and Carneros. 35% of the blend is fermented in French oak Burgundy barrels and none of the wine is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation. Tasting notes from the producer: "The nose opens with stone fruit and mango, which gives way to lemon and lime zest with green pear. Then come floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Under all of this, there is a warm, sweet baking spice to bring even more intrigue. The palate has citrus, white peach, pomelo, and lychee flavors. The texture is reminiscent of a creamy custard with a lively acidity and freshness that is balanced by a structured, almost grapefruit pithy, bite on the lengthy finish."
