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.
A beautiful, Burgundian nose of orchard fruits, white flowers, chalky minerality, and honeysuckle emerge from the 2019 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard, a riveting, pure, flawlessly balanced Chardonnay that shines on all accounts. Picking up a kiss of green almond and toast with time in the glass, it has beautifully integrated acidity, a layered, rich yet light on its feet mouthfeel, and a great finish. This is just about as good as it gets in 2019 with regards to Chardonnay. Give bottles a year or two in the cellar and enjoy through 2032.
