"Made from 100% Wente Clone Chardonnay, this barrel sample of the 2019 Chardonnay UV Vineyard is set to be aged for 15 months in French oak and concrete egg. It delivers notes of crushed rocks and chalk dust over a core of white peaches and fresh pears plus a hint of toasted almonds. Medium to full-bodied, it is wonderfully expressive in the mouth with tons of stone fruit and spicy layers, finishing with great length. 250 cases are due to be made. (94-96)
