PEAY CHARDONNAY "ESTATE", SONOMA COAST 2016
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is dense and also wonderfully translucent. Creamy, rich and expansive, with striking depth, the 2016 captures all the personality of Peay's cool climate Sonoma Coast estate vineyard. Bright acids and beams of supporting minerality add focus.
NVWE Notes: Reminding of an especially elegant Grand Cru Chablis, the aromas and flavors of this intense wine are youthful yet beautifully expressive. They unfold as a harmonious combination of dried apple, dried pear, sweet fresh apple, honey, peach blossom and white rose, with wet oyster shell notes in drying counterpoint, but without coarseness. The mouth-feel is firm and satin-smooth, and the flavors already delicious. The finish is extremely long and brilliantly food-friendly. A nearly ideal companion to shellfish or any raw seafood right now, it will likely improve for several years. 700 cases produced.
