BLUE FARM CHARDONNAY, GAP'S CROWN VINEYARD, PETALUMA GAP SONOMA COAST 2014
NVWE Notes: Bright, fresh, vividly fruity yet richly oaky, the nose of this immediately impressive Chardonnay offers white peach, baked apple, golden fig, dried golden mulberry, pineapple core, cantaloupe, lemon blossom, hazelnut husk and vanilla scents braced by an undercurrent of chalky minerality. It is as plush on the palate as expected, yet the mineral notes contrast the wine’s opulent fruit-spice surge to bring dinner-balance and a dry raciness that lingers through a long, seductive, surprisingly fresh finish. This beauty should uplift a myriad of wintry entrees. 200 cases produced.
Bright and refreshing acidity is the star of this lovely, windswept wine, powerful yet integrated in tannin and oak. The racy, feral notes of anise, apple blossom and nutmeg are complemented by a teasingly voluptuous spirit that never overwhelms.
The 2014 Chardonnay Gap's Crown Vineyard has an exuberant nose of white peaches, grapefruit, lemon curd, marzipan and orange blossoms with a waft of baking bread. Medium bodied and elegantly crafted in the mouth, it delivers many layers of flavor with a great backbone of freshness and some minerals coming through on the long finish.
