About This Wine
It’s the key to a happy marriage… to succeeding in a job… to achieving a goal. It also is the driving force behind the wines crafted by Mayfield Cellars, including its 2016 Chardonnay.
For this exceptional wine, Mayfield tapped respected growers in Washington’s acclaimed Columbia Valley region. There, most vineyards have soils of loess — wind-blown deposits of sand and silt — overlying gravel and slackwater sediment, with basalt forming the bedrock. This provides a diversity of soil types that are well drained and ideal for viticulture.
Grapes from these vineyards are then utilized by the vintner at Mayfield Cellars to craft a Chardonnay of outstanding character. Quite complex, the 2016 vintage is rich in the mouth with an array of aromas that will delight the nose and similar flavors that will please the palate. It’s a delectable example of commitment in the vineyards as well as in the cellar.
Relatively easy to grow in a variety of locations. Consistently produces some of the world's great white wines. Complex, full, rich and fruity with soft edges and moderate acidity. Offers rich and intense fruit flavors of apple, fig, melon, pear, peach, pineapple, along with creamy yeast spice, honey, butter and hazelnut flavors.
