Tasting Notes: "Undoubtedly one of the best Chardonnays produced in America today, this is a gripping, textured wine with a richness of extraction offset by striking freshness. Stone fruit and pear flavours are cutting and pure, limned in subtle, savoury smoke and a gorgeously briney streak of minerality. A powerful, stately wine that should improve through this next decade and hold further still."- Decanter.
"A perfumed nose of baked lemons, poached pears, grated nutmeg and fresh flowers. Medium-bodied with silky tannins and texture. Soft and supple with lovely length. Bright and fresh. Drink of hold."- James Suckling.
"The 2019 Chardonnay VGW is fresh with white flowers, orange peel, and light flint. It has more tension on the palate, with fresh lime, delicate vanillin spice, and lasting floral notes on the back end. True to the vintage, it is a bit more subtle in its personality. although I think this will be an incredible wine as it matures over the next 10 or more years."- Jeb Dunnuck.
