Lucia Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
A blend of 62% Pisoni Vineyards and 38% Soberanes Vineyard, the 2016 Lucia Chardonnay possesses lively aromas of citrus oil, orange peel, and golden delicious apple coupled with beautiful green mango notes. This cuvée combines a variety of Wente Chardonnay clonal selections to bring concentration and texture. The high-altitude blocks of Pisoni Vineyards create a phenolic structure and the vines at the Soberanes vineyard give a refreshing, bright acidity on the palate. This is a wonderful chardonnay to enjoy now that will also cellar well for several years.
Pure and minerally, this lithe white offers delicate flavors of Asian pear, dried pineapple and Fuji apple that are well-structured. Shows mouthwatering acidity on the finish, with plenty of spice. Drink now through 2022.
