2015 Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay

A Wine We Loved
June 20, 2018


Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay  


Dave Phinney's best known wine is the Orin Swift The Prisoner that he created at at his Orin Swift Cellars in northern Napa Valley and then sold to a conglomerate. I recently tasted through his current range of wines and found them pretty impressive. 

Case in point: this Chardonnay. Once past the impressive collage of mannequins on the label, you get a pleasurable synthesis of best of two styles of California chardonnay: Crisp acidity, and richness of texture with just a grace note of oak.

It is a graceful and rich whole, with an inviting aromatic lilt; tremendously satisfying. 

2015 Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay; Aroma: fresh lightly oaky, light oak deep fruit, heady rather dense, fresh acidity; Mouth: clean bright lime-melon, very bright clean , a sense of richness and length; Very Good - Excellent 32; Mixed Case, 28.8; Case, 27.20
