Green pear skins and flesh lead toward aromas of nectarine and lime preserves on brioche on the nose of this wine from a historic vineyard. There is a zesty brightness to the sip as well as riper flavors of roasted apple, yellow peach and pineapple, framed by a chalky structure. (MK)
Limpid yellow-gold. Smoke-accented aromas of fresh orange, pear, anise and vanilla show sharp definition and minerally lift. Fleshy yet dry and incisive, offering energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors that are complemented by hints of bitter quinine, tarragon and honeysuckle. Closes with bright, stony cut and firm grip, leaving a trace of smoky minerals behind. (EB)
Rich as pie, this has a baked-apple comfort and sweetness that feels gentle and forthright. Scents of pineapple and lees and the peach-skin bite to the finish give it shape and elegance. *Best Buy*
From the Santa Maria Valley and all from the Clone 15 of Chardonnay, the 2017 Chardonnay reveals a quite light color to go with a perfumed bouquet of racy green citrus, lychee, rose petals, white flowers, and salty minerality. Graceful and lively, if not a touch fleeting, it's nevertheless balanced and seamless, with nicely integrated acidity and a detailed, elegant, juicy style. Drink it over the coming 3-5 years.
