Antica Chardonnay Napa Valley Atlas Peak

2015 Antica Chardonnay Napa Valley Atlas Peak...$19.99
Suggest retail $35
Oyster shell and cooked apple with hints of lemon follow through to a full body, tangy fruit and a flavorful finish. Minerally. Fascinating. Drink or hold.
Rated 94/100 James Suckling
"Lemon gold in color, giving way to mouthwatering citrus aromas tinged with baking spice notes. Creamy and decadent, with ripe melon, apricots, lemon curd, Marcona almond notes and juicy acidity. A long mineral finish demands Antinori's favorite pairing of spaghetti with clams." - Food and Wine Magazine
"That cold air allows Antica's Chardonnay to ripen slowly while retaining bright acids.  Antica Is One of Napa's Hidden Treasures" - Food and Wine Magazine
