2017 Chamisal Vineyards Edna Valley Chardonnay
92 points, Wine Advocate
Chamisal was the first vineyard planted in the Edna Valley in 1973 and now contains 80 acres planted to 5 varieties and 25 clonal selections. The nearby Pacific ocean creates a long temperate growing season for exceptional hang time, which combines with the calcareous, clay-rich soil to produce fruit with exceptional intensity and complex flavors.
Our 2017 Edna Valley Chardonnay is intensely aromatic with notes of baked granny smith apple and crème brulee. Warm vanilla and butterscotch on the palate are balanced by a creamy body, focused acidity and a lengthy finish.
