2015 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay
This Chardonnay deftly walks the line between our Arroyo Seco bottlings and the unwooded Lot 526. Think Burgundy with a kiss of California sunshine.
The nose is gorgeous, exploding out of the glass with a veil of orange blossom and papaya pierced by a super cool gunflint/white pepper note, girded with fresh churned butter. Upfront notes of papaya brighten with a mouthwatering mid-palate of mandarin and blossom that finishes with a wave of buttery caramel, papaya and white pepper. Lovely purity and fabulosity.
