PELLET ESTATE CHARDONNAY SUNCHASE VINEYARD SONOMA COAST 2013
NVWE Notes: Both rich and slightly exotic, the nose of this expressive bottling quickly unveils aromas of Fuji apple, white peach, pineapple core, yellow rose, mock orange, brioche, vanilla wafer and a hint of toasted coconut. There is a more stylish palate-feel that the aromas suggest, yet all the promised flavors are forthcoming and lingering, with notes of cantaloupe and coconut cream pie added-on at the finish. Delicious by itself, it will find harmony with a wide variety of fish and fowl entrees. 175 cases produced.
In contrast to the 2013 Unoaked, the 2013 Chardonnay Sun Chase Vineyards has a slightly richer style with a hint of hazelnut and brioche, medium to full body and comes across like a premier cru or possibly a grand cru from Puligny Montrachet. It has loads of minerality, good acidity and plenty of flesh and richness. This is impressive wine and should drink well for up to a decade. Pellet specializes in wines from the Sun Chase Vineyard, which sits at an elevation of 900 to 1,400 feet in the Petaluma Wind Gap. eRobertParker.com # , #223 (Mar 2016) Drink 2016 - 2026
