2018 Signature Chardonnay, Napa Valley
The hallmark of Darioush Signature Chardonnay is its progressive style of integrating precision, richness, and complexity. Grown from the winery estate and renowned Chardonnay vineyards of Los Carneros, these cooler Southern Napa Valley climes exhibit quintessential varietal characteristics while preserving inherent freshness and vibrancy.
"A big, open-textured style, featuring richly spiced ripe white fruit flavors..."
Wine Spectator | Rated 91
From its alluring aromatic entry to its persistent mineral-laden finish, the 2018 vintage shows impressive symmetry and delineation. Honeycrisp apple and Bosc pear flavors are energized by clean, bright layers of tangy citrus and stony minerality— lemon blossom, kumquat, Gravenstein apple, and apricot.
