PAUL LATO CHARDONNAY "EAST OF EDEN", PISONI VINEYARD, SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS 2016

NVWE Notes: Vividly expressive of Santa Lucia Highlands fruit, the nose of this gorgeous Chardonnay opens with an intensely zesty splash of lemon sorbet, Fuji applesauce, tangerine, peach blossom, white rose, honeysuckle, vanilla wafer, toasted meringue, peach pit and nut husk scents, firmed by undercurrents of white pepper and “river-stone” minerality. It is tongue-tingling, racy and brilliantly forthcoming on the palate, where lemon, lime, and orange zest notes are prelude to a rush of pear skin, red apple, orange souffle, pineapple upside down cake, meringue, brioche, toasted nut and mineral flavors. The finish is deep, rich and lingering, yet is most memorable for its soft-edged yet spectacular zest. A fabulous seafood wine already, it should mellow and expand for several years but never lose the wonderful energy that is its hallmark.

The 2016 Chardonnay East Of Eden Pisoni Vineyard reveals notes of lemon, lime cordial and citrus blossom, followed by a full-bodied, rich palate that’s a bit more angular and powerful than the three other Chardonnays but misses some of their intensity and cut, though it concludes with an intriguingly saline finish.
