The 2021 Silhouette is everything we love about great Chardonnay—bright, fresh, full, complex, long and delicious. Barrel fermented with native yeasts in the classic Burgundian style, the wine is unctuous and full while expressing the bright acidity of the cool Carneros appellation. The palate is a delightful blend of honeysuckle, juicy pear, and lemon zest, with a touch of tropical pineapple and a subtle mineral undertone. The fruit is bright and lively, underlined by a creamy texture that gives it a luxurious, well-rounded mouthfeel. There’s a gentle interplay between the fruit, the oak, and a precise touch of acidity, creating a long, well-balanced and nuanced wine. An excellent food companion, the wine is also stunning on its own and will continue to evolve over the next 10+ years.
