2017 Mayacamas Mt. Veeder Chardonnay

SKU #1431011 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Winemakers Braiden Albrecht and Andy Erickson crafted magic out of a difficult vintage, picking the grapes for this beautiful white well before the October 2017 fires. It's gorgeously racy and light, bright and effusive, offering fleshy flavors of peach and lemon. Licorice and fennel finish out the expressive wine, which persists in wet stone. (VB) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Very pretty, old-school style with sliced-lemon, apple and candied-lemon character. Creamy undertones. Full-bodied, tight and dense. Creamy yet tangy finish. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark 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. (ED) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (KM) Inner quote mark (6/2019)
