Delicate aromas are suggestive of lemon meringue, brioche and a hint of nutmeg. The mouthwatering palate is greeted with notes of casaba melon, kaffir lime, stone fruits and clean minerality. Nectarine, honey and wild ginger blend harmoniously into a long, lingering finish.

Bright straw-yellow. Rather wild scents of peach pit, strawberry, lime peel, hazelnut and musky lees. Rich and dense on entry, then concentrated and saline in the middle palate, with a melting umami quality that reminded me a bit of sake. Holds its shape and energy nicely through a subtly long, savory aftertaste. A very sophisticated, classically dry, youthful Chardonnay with a bright future.

The aromas offer notes of burnt toast, pumpkin and peach, with the oak not having fully integrated yet. There's a lovely balance and texture to the reserved but still full-feeling fruit flavors. Toast notes linger on the finish. Give it a few years in the cellar to see it at its best.

The 2019 Chardonnay is all Chardonnay that was brought up in 40% new French oak (with a small amount in concrete) and 50% of the blend going through malolactic fermentation. It offers lots of orchard fruits and brioche as well as a subtle background oak, medium-bodied richness, and good overall balance. It should drink nicely for 3-5 years, if not longer, given its concentration and balance.
