This is the first vintage from Wayfarer to include their newest Chardonnay blocks, and the effect is explosive. Perfumed with orange blossom, jasmine, lemon zest and toasted almonds, the palate boasts even more compelling layers of caramelized orchard fruit, wet stone, and beautiful acidity. Marine salinity pulls through after some time in the glass, hinting at further depths of flavor after a year or two in the cellar.
The 2018 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard opens with explosive perfume! Gunflint, spring honey, white flowers and salted almonds mingle over rich quince paste and warm apple fruit. The palate is equally as compelling, its powerful, rich layers of flavor packed into an ultra silky frame, offering bright pops of juiciness and a finish that goes on forever. Wow! It's stunning now but may improve with more time in bottle.
