ARNS CHARDONNAY, CHARLES HEINTZ VINEYARD, SONOMA COAST 2015
NVWE Notes: Vivid, fresh and forthcoming, the nose of this gorgeous Chardonnay pinpoints notes of green apple, fresh lime, pineapple core, lemon blossom, peach pit, vanilla wafer and hints of coconut cream and “river stone” minerality to produce a perfume that is both rich and elegant. The impression of chiseled focus is as evident on the palate, where feminine raciness tempers the intense fruit to streamline the mouth-feel. This is a vineyard famous for it’s rush of almost “weighty” tropical fruit, yet the finish of this wine rolls-out as a supple, gently piquant caress of sweet green apple, pear skin, lime, lemon, pineapple soufflé, vanilla wafer and baking-spice, above a background of nut husk and marzipan braced by low-key mineral undercurrents. Captivating now, if may be more so in a year or two. 70 cases made.
