D'ALFONSO-CURRAN CHARDONNAY, WHITE HILLS VINEYARD, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY 2013
This Chardonnay—one of the best tasted in months—is light in the glass and shows clean, refreshing, yet compellingly rich sea salt, toasted sourdough, key lime and daffodil aromas. Its unique palate blends bright lemon-lime, Asian pear and Marcona almond flavors with a crushed shell minerality that brings the seashore to mind.
NVWE Notes: This richly endowed Chardonnay offers plush fruit and savory spice uplifted by pretty floral suggestions. The nose melds scents of apple, white peach, lemon curd, honeysuckle, yellow rose, camphor blossoms, baking-spice, meringue and a wisp of bacon smoke. It is densely-packed on the palate, delivering baked apple, peach, lemon bar, orange blossom, white rose, honeysuckle, vanilla wafer, mace and baking-spice notes which carry through a lingering finish where hints of lemon peel, lime zest and minerals chime-in at the end. It is built for rich entrees. 153 cases made.
