The first thing you notice about the 2018 Chardonnay is its lovely green/gold color. Then it’s the oh-so-promising aroma: a little toasty, a little lemony, some stone fruit. This bodes well…. Sure enough, on the palate, the wine delivers as promised. And then some. It is firm, crisp and full simultaneously without being the least bit ponderous. In spite of its power, it maintains a graceful, elegant stance in perfect harmony with a succulent mid-palate. The second half of the wine transitions seamlessly to a long, clean, crisp and altogether lipsmacking finish. The overall impression is one of bright flavors, youthful vigor & superb structure.
