SPEAR CHARDONNAY "ESTATE", STA. RITA HILLS 2016
NVWE Notes: Density and style are equal contributors to this lovely Chardonnay’s personality. Although still a bit youthfully reticent, its nose shows a mix of baked apple, yellow peach, pineapple core, orange pith, grapefruit, honey, mineral and graham cracker scents. It is rich in body and distinctive in character on the palate, where dried yellow peach, apple skin, quince, white peach, orange flesh melon, white pepper and mineral flavors achieve a rich harmony. The finish is deep and lingering, and this wine should prove just the thing for service with garlic-lemon rubbed roast chicken. 120 cases produced.
Plump aromas of daffodil, toasted sourdough, hot sand and roasted nuts are cut by lemon rind on the nose of this estate bottling. The palate is laser-focused and grippy, with flavors of preserved lemon, sea salt, tart apple and a light butterscotch touch on the finish.
