BREWER CLIFTON CHARDONNAY, STA. RITA HILLS 2015
NVWE Notes: This is an amazingly fine “appellation” Chardonnay of chiseled clarity and exquisite balance. The nose jumps forth in a vivid array of peach pit, white peach, apple skin, apple sauce, orange and Meyer lemon zest and white pepper scents, cut by flint, slate and chalk-like mineral notes. Things are just as intense and focused on the palate, where everything promised by the aromas is richly replicated and lingering. The finish is both luxurious and cutting crisp, so the wine should be a perfect foil to sauced fish or fowl and especially to raw sea foods. It is likely be to long-lived. A blend of the 3D, Acin & Machado Vineyards.
Refined and powerful, with concentrated flavors of green apple, ripe citrus and mineral that are deftly supported by fresh acidity. Hints of dried savory herbs show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 3,500 cases made. K.M.
