Kosta Browne One Sixteen Chardonnay 2020
|California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley
This white comes from a blend of sites that stand on their own as single-vineyard-designates, including El Diablo, Zio Tony, Bootlegger's Hill and more. Together they offer a seamless expression of the grape, a compelling mix of honeycomb, Meyer lemon and crème brûlée. Acidity complements the richness with ease.
The 2020 Chardonnay One-Sixteen is sunny with notes of beeswax, orange zest, and baked apple. It has rich concentration and texture, with a spine of acidity. Notes of Meyer lemon, and almond, and warming baking spice fill out the palate. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
Pineapple, peach and mango flavors are intense and juicy, showing tangy acidity on a bold frame. Vanilla and pastry flavors linger in the background, with spice notes. Drink now. 2,350 cases made.
