Abundant layers of complex flavors growing increasingly luminescent and steely in the glass. Lucid ripe citrus and white peach are inured with ornate spices and lime zest. The fleshiness of the wine sways and eases the razor-sharp purity of the Granite soil influence. The brittle crunch in the structure hems in the lush texture, with an elongated thread of grape acid resonating in the finish.
Newton Johnson F.V. - Chardonnay 2018
Nice blend of richness and crisp green fruit on the nose. Very light malo influence (100% malo apparently) and really super-fresh fruit. Sea breezes waft through this wine, which should age well. (JR) 16.5pts
