Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chardonnay Starling Morelli Roost displays a complex array of stone fruit, citrus, savory and mineral notes, with grapefruit, peach blossoms, candied ginger, crushed stones and crème brulee fragrances emerging in stages. The medium-bodied, satin-textured palate is tightly wound at this youthful stage, revealing intense citrus and peach fruit notes intertwined with honey toast and minerals, wrapped in a lively frame and finishing with great length.
