94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Another rocking wine is the 2014 Chardonnay Gap’s Crown Vineyard, which spent 12 months in 40% new oak. Rich, medium to full-bodied, textured and layered, it has terrific notes of crushed rock, white peach, white flowers and a kiss of that cream corn characteristics that I almost only find in wines from the north coast. It too will shine for decade.

93pts Wine Enthusiast

Crisp green apple is the star in this well-made, balanced and elegant wine, that's tangy yet smooth, with a voluptuous tease of anise. Approachably structured, the complexity of the texture and lurking layers of further flavor suggest letting this wine open slowly to unveil its true self, and allowing it to linger on the palate.  Editors' Choice

Winemaker Notes

 

Brilliant yellow in color, this wine is full of juicy pineapple, candied ginger and fresh basil on the nose. The tropical fruit and notes of poached pear continue on the palate, creating an unctuous texture and ripeness to this Chardonnay. This is a wine to enjoy with or without food thanks to its fresh fruit character and lusciousness.
