2017 Josephine Napa Valley Chardonnay
An homage to Josephine Tychson, the first women to build and operate a winery in California, first established in 1886. Pale gold in color, the nose reveals a perfume of melon, peach, and nectarine with subtle hints of coconut oil and wet gravel. Rich and creamy on the palate, the Josephine’s flavors of pear and carmelized green apple are kept fresh by the wine’s balancing acidity. The wine finishes long with nuances of citrus oil, minerality, and just the right touch of cedar and toasted vanilla. A powerful expression of Napa Chardonnay that would pair exquisitely with Mussels steamed in a lemongrass coconut broth.
