2016 Rhys Vineyards "Alesia" Anderson Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1345875 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Anderson Valley from the team at Rhys knocks it out of the park, and I suspect it’s a screaming value. White peach, apple blossom, spice, and some white flower notes all flow to a medium-bodied, elegant, seamless Chardonnay that has tons of character. It will keep for 5-7 years. Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark The 2016 Alesia Anderson Valley Chardonnay is a nicely cool customer at 12.5 percent and quite aromatically expressive, wafting from the glass in a fine blend of peach, a touch of guava, lovely soil tones, touch of fresh almond, fruit blossoms and a discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, bright and beautifully light on its feet, with a good core, fine, nascent complexity and a long, well-balanced and bouncy finish. Good juice. (Drink between 2018-2025) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

K&L Notes

The Alesia label at Rhys Vineyards has made a re-appearance with an attractively priced Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the 2016 vintage. In years past as Rhys Vineyards waited for new plantings at their estate vineyards to come into production, they had reserved the Alesia label to bottle wines made from purchased fruit. But this 2016 Anderson Valley bottling is made entirely from estate vines that could one day be bottled as Rhys' Bearwallow Vineyard.
