Had this in a restaurant with some Sushi. Pale lemon with complex aromas of fresh citrus with herbal mineral notes. Orange & citrus flavors adding grapefruit & lemon tones, great acidity balance, rich & smooth, medium finish ending with grassy savory mineral character. Nice! — 3 days ago

@Delectable Wine : This is Theorem’s Moon Mountain District chardonnay. I didn’t see it in the database.
Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.
Theorem was one of our highlights last year, so we made sure a return visit was lined up this year. Base of Diamond Mtn with one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen. Over the last 12 months, they’ve added a couple new wines (with more to come from Moon Mountain). TRB is the winemaker.
Another new wine to the lineup is the moon Mountain Chardonnay. When comparing to other chardonnays TRB crafts, this site is pulling in more slate/limestone and high acidity, compared to his Sonoma chardonnays that have a lot of oyster shell and tart stone fruits. Very bright and concentrated. Underripe melon, powdered lemon bar, crushed rocks, honeysuckle and wildflowers all reveal themselves. I’d hold this for a few years. — 2 days ago
2013 and it’s still alive and kicking. As it opens up it begins to express all of its tropical fruit aromas like mango, papaya and passion fruit. It has a creamy aroma and creamy texture from its fermentation and ageing in oak. It’s like a light coconut and white chocolate powder dashed on top. Lovely texture, tight and crunchy, with an orange peel and cream. Long finish. #sauvignonblanc #fuméblanc #mondavi #californiawine #napavalley — 18 days ago
