Bright orchard fruits, brioche, toasted bread, and honeysuckle notes all emerge from the 2017 Chardonnay Estate. It's medium-bodied and has a tight, vibrant texture as well as some Burgundian style in its texture and acidity. It's a beautiful effort.
91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Chardonnay Estate, aged 14 months in 20% new French oak, has open-knit aromas of apple pie, crushed stone, sweet spices, quince paste and hay with notions of honeysuckle and honeyed almonds. The palate is medium-bodied, silky and lively, demonstrating great restraint of fruit and just enough of that savory character. It’s refreshed by bright acidity and finishes long and bright.
Notes of lemon tart, jasmine and orange blossom on the nose with nectarine, green apple, yuzu, and meyer lemon on the palate.
