Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) "Light aromas of beeswax, crushed chalk and scratch lemon skins emerge steadily on the nose of this single vineyard bottling, which carries lots of life and would thrive in a cellar. The chalky texture of the palate frames red apple, yellow pear, lime rind and sea salt flavors, with lots of acidic sizzle." ~ Wine Enthusiast "There's clean vibrancy to this chardonnay grown on a sandy hillside 12 miles from the Pacific. Its juicy yellow-raspberry flavor is confidently ripe, yet tightens in the end on salty coastal acidity. It feels pithy rather than fat, a match for salt cod croquettes.
