2020 Estate Chardonnay

2020 Estate Chardonnay

94 points

Darrin Low blends this organically farmed fruit from two estate vineyards—Walraven in the hills above Boonville (61 percent) and Dach, surrounding the winery in Philo (39 percent). The wine ferments without added yeasts in barrels (10 percent new), then ages in them for 10 months, where the flavors concentrate into an earthy, airy, long and graceful chardonnay at 12.5 percent alcohol. The fruit has a range of citrus notes, from orange zest to lime pith and light, dusty tannins carrying notes of lemon meringue, giving a sweet and savory end. Pour it with roasted wild mushrooms, like chicken of the woods.

Perfumed and fresh aromas of thyme, stone fruit and citrus. The palate is precise and focused with flavors of pear, honeysuckle and beeswax complimented with light oak toast and salinity. A very pleasant and inviting wine.
