2021 Chardonnay, Catarina
White peach, honeysuckle and underpinning white pepper just begin
to describe the nose. Hints of vanilla, lily’s and soapstone minerality add to the complex
fragrance. There is rich viscosity to the mouthfeel, with more stone fruit flavors and a range of
spice. The richness of the wine is balanced by the fresh bright acid that comes through. The finish
is long and perfumed. This wonderful wine is beautiful chilled down now, but will show
wonderfully in the next 7-8 years (2029-2030).
