2017

"The 2017 vintage of Mayacamas Chardonnay — our team's fifth — showcases both site and vintage beautifully. Aromas of ripe lemon honeysuckle and crushed oyster shell highlight the nose. On the palate, the wine has the classic Mayacamas acidity and is framed nicely by the textural richness in the mid-palate that comes from a warm vintage."

"The 2017 Chardonnay is a gorgeous wine that captures the phenolic, savory style that is so typical of these wines. Rich, layered and resonant in the glass, the 2017 has so much to offer. Time in the glass brings out a whole range of floral, herbal and citrus confit notes, but this is a Chardonnay built on a real sense of texture. The 2017 spent 22 months in oak and 6 months in steel."

Wine Spectator

"Vibrantly fresh, with well-proportioned flavors of McIntosh apple, Asian pear and dried quince, backed by fresh acidity. The minerally finish lingers with good snap. Drink now through 2024."

Decanter

"With a rich history, Mayacamas Vineyards is a pioneer on Mt Veeder, crafting a consistent signature style under Andy Erickson's guidance. The site where the fruit is grown is elevated above the fog line, and the vines average 40 years old. During the 2017 growing season this site experienced warm temperatures relative to surrounding areas. These conditions, plus extended elevage, have produced a memorable Chardonnay with notes of lemon custard and Buddha's hand citrus zest, complemented by a layer of nectarine blossom. Upon first sip, a refreshing and electric acidity instantly wakes the senses. Oak integration gives this wine stamina and a lengthy finish."
