Light on the nose, this shows delicate aromas of Asian pear, honeysuckle, squeezed lemon wedge, fresh coconut flesh and a tiny bit of butter. The palate is also demure yet delicious, with lightly poached apples, squeezed lime and a chalky textural grip. (MK)
Get past this wine’s initial toasty scent of oak and you’ll find some delicious fruit; its sunny papaya flavor and salty, marine tang feel like textbook Santa Rita Hills chardonnay, capturing this high-elevation south-facing hillside vineyard with roots in marine sediments. Serve it as you would a rich albariño, with crispy head-on prawns.
Spicy oak emerges straightaway as a principal player here but it is checked by enough apple-like fruit to not be overly dominant. If never quite juicy, the wine is fairly open in stance to start and is sufficiently rich to overcome its eleventh-hour suggestions of chalky coarseness. Another year in bottle will go a long way in smoothing out its rough spots. *One Star*
Centered on a core of white peach, nectarine and citrus notes, this is easy-drinking, clean and refreshing. (JL, Web-2017)
