BREWER CLIFTON CHARDONNAY 3-D VINEYARD, SANTA RITA HILLS 2017

NVWE Notes: In all ways a Greg Brewer production, this wine is built to last, and it drinks significantly better the morning after opening. The aromas are a juicy, focused, crisply-balanced, coiled mix of dried yellow peach, fresh Fuji apple, golden mulberry, lemon peel, chamomile, honeysuckle and mock orange blossom, infused with a streak of “riverstone” minerality. It is more expressive on the palate, where bright zest and hard mineral tones make a stony-dry platform for layers of melon, apple, yellow peach, lemon peel, chamomile, honeysuckle and a piquant note of apricot pit. Super-long and never less than rich, it wants service - at this point - with richly sauced entrees. Overnight airing transforms it from an almost clumsily intense wine into one with polish, poise and lovely dinner balance. It should be really something in a few more years. 750 cases made.

94 Points

Sleek, with powerful minerality to the pure-tasting flavors of pear tart, apple pastry and peach. Rich lemon curd accents fill in midpalate and linger on the spicy and well-framed finish. Drink now through 2025. 800 cases made. KM Dec 15, 2019
