The 2015 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard has an intense nose of pineapple, guava and ginger with honeysuckle, marzipan, cashews and brioche.

NVWE Notes: This is a stunning effort, full of drama yet exquisite in it’s precision and balance. The aromas are an opulent perfume of lemon custard, apple galette, peach, quince and orange blossom paired seamlessly to notes of toasted hazelnut, meringue, vanilla wafer and honey. It is flavor-drenched on the palate, where the creamy vanilla, honey and toasted nut notes find perfect harmony with even more intense fruit contributions which more generously mirror the aromas. The finish is luxuriant yet silky and high-toned, so this ultra-rich wine is never less than food-friendly. It is likely to grow in elegance over the next few years, although its is hard to imaging it tasting much more delicious than it does now. 800 case made.
