Pacificana Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2019 (California) 750ML

5 stars (93/100) Wine Orbit
4 ½ stars – The Wine Writer 

 

"Stylish and complex, the wine shows apricot, baked fig, nougat and toasty oak characters on the nose with a hint of brioche. The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight wonderfully complemented by creamy mouthfeel and well-pitched acidity, finishing persistent and soothing. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Aug 2020

A fruit-driven Chardonnay with notes of apple and lemon rind. Followed by oak, butterscotch, and honeysuckle with subtle earthy notes.

Pacificana showcases classic California styles for the next generation of wine enthusiasts. It embodies the bold, pioneering spirit of the California landscape and those who call it home. 100% barrel fermented, then aged in American oak barrels, this 2019 Chardonnay isn’t the oak-bomb style of ten years ago. Instead, it strikes the perfect balance between richness and elegance.

ABV: 13.7%
