Our Chardonnay has notes of savory apple and lime zest, browned butter and brulee, clean ocean breeze, hints of tropical fruit (guava/pineapple), complex and surprisingly integrated for such a young Chardonnay. Apple créme brulee, lime zest and citrus blossom, rich with a flavor akin to pears poached in butter. Firm acid, quite dry, but supported by a good dollop of fruity and oak - toasted richness. Slightly leaner style than 2013, but with enough malolactic and oak treatment to leave no doubt this is a crafty and deliciouslly balanced Chardonnay. Ready to drink now but will become a little more complex, mineral and nutty between 5 and 8 years from vintage date. Decanting/aerating suggested through 2019.
