This Chardonnay is rich and oak-driven with familiar notes of Asian pear and flint. However, this vintage also displays some round almost tropical notes with complex range of baking spices and a hint of vanilla. It comes across rounder and fuller than the 2019, but still shows the fresh acidity of the county. The buttery smooth texture and long finish leave you looking forward to the next sip. 91 points, Wine Align panel, tasted Spring 2023.
