Wine Spectator Review
Focused and fresh-tasting, with lemon-lime notes to the fresh-cut apple, tangerine and ripe citrus flavors. Dried green herb and spice details show on the finish. Drink now through 2021.
The Chardonnay opens with vibrant orchard fruit aromatics, particularly Anjou pear and Fuji apple. With air, these are augmented by autumnal scents of baking spice and Marcona almond. Racy on the palate, this is a vintage full of fresh, mineral energy- hints of sea shell and river stones that dovetail into a long, mouthwatering finish. Perhaps our most precise expression of our Santa Maria vineyard yet, we expect this vivacious Chardonnay to age beautifully over the next 6 to 8 years.
