Lucia Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
There are two Chardonnay under this label, both terrific. The 2018 Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands boasts a medium gold color as well as Burgundian notes of mulled stone fruits, toasted bread, spice, and subtle oak. It's rich, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, and just a classic Chardonnay that does everything right. I'd drink it over the coming 4-5 years, yet I'm sure it will keep longer.
Richly spiced, with flan accents to the apple pastry and pear tart flavors, backed by crunchy acidity. Creamy midpalate, leading to a finish that lingers with dried savory notes. Drink now through 2025. 480 cases made.
Toasted macadamia nut, baked orange, light buttercream and sea salt converge on the lush and engaging nose on this bottling. It's plush and smooth on the palate, where salted almond, baked lemon and white peach flavors arise.
