Lean and taut when first poured, this chardonnay seems held in suspension by a gunflint, sulfite character. With air, the reduction recedes, revealing a tart, lemony white with savory flavors that are assertive but not weighty, mouthfilling but not heavy. Instead, the wine feels focused and kinetic, more about energy and movement than any particular flavor.
The 2014 Chardonnay Seven Springs Vineyard la Source, 20% matured in Stockinger 500-liter puncheons for 11 months, has a far superior bouquet compared to the Estate Chardonnay - much better delineation and mineralité, greater complexity and more Chablis-like. The palate is fresh and crisp with a keen line of acidity, a touch of lemongrass here with a vibrant finish that lingers in the mouth. This "wired" Chardonnay comes recommended.
Bright, focused and laser-sharp, articulating the mineral-accented pear and citrus flavors. Lingers with presence. Drink now through 2024. 450 cases made.
