Golden straw in color with a touch of wildflower honey, this wine sparkles delicately in the glass, reminding us of our 2002 chardonnay. Fittingly, it embodies all of the qualities of that very first vintage: highly nuanced honeysuckle, pineapple, and flint, along with substantial body and lithe acidity. The rich buttercream and toffee that were present in the 2010 and 2011 vintages are absent here. Instead, tropical fruit notes dominate, mingling with effervescent Meyer lemon, lemongrass, and bergamot and leading to deeper notes of guava and subtle caramel. Time in the glass reveals an intriguing note of savory toasted Marcona almond with a dusting of lavender and fleur de sel. Silky and deep on the palate with a delicate yet lively zest that beckons another sip… and another! Drink now through 2022.
