Bright in color and expression, the 2018 Heintz Chardonnay entices with vibrant notes of Meyer lemon and crisp green apple. Woven amongst hints of ripe lychee and fresh star fruit is a whisper of toasted coconut, lending a nutty intricacy throughout. A mineral flintiness nimbly complements the bright fruit, leading to a refreshing and layered finish.
The 2018 Chardonnay Heintz balances the natural richness of this site with the freshness of the year. Apricot, orchard fruit, mint and lightly honeyed notes all grace this racy, super-polished Chardonnay from Radio-Coteau. As always, the Heintz Chardonnay has a phenolic, textural feel that is really unique to this vineyard.
