LA VOIX CHARDONNAY "HERE AND HEAVEN", JOHN SEBASTIANO VINEYARD, STA. RITA HILLS 2015
Steve Clifton's music-meets-wine project taps into mandolinist Chris Thile and vocalist Aoife O'Donovan's song for this bottling. It shows rounded ripe mango, pineapple, Pink Lady apples and peach on the nose, framed by steely alkalinity and tight lemon rind. The flavors are soft, clean and easy to enjoy, with Asian pear, nectarine and a steady saltiness emerging toward the finish. DATE PUBLISHED 3/1/2017 MATT KETTMANN
NVWE Notes: Steve Clifton’s new Chardonnay is a portrait of quiet elegance, in stark contrast to the ferociously intense wines he helped craft at Brewer-Clifton. The aromas are a youthfully subtle mix of quince, lemon curd, baked apple, white peach, mock orange, vanilla cream and meringue scents, with a wisp of Thai basil in the background. White peach, baked apple, Bosc pear, Canary melon, orange souffle, white pepper and chestnut flavors find a pretty harmony on the palate. The finish is genteel and lingering and the wine is a pleasure to drink already. 92 cases produced.
