91 pts - John Gilman, View from the Cellar (2016)

 

Grapes:  100% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes:  Bright and complex nose of apple, lemon blossoms, a touch of fresh pineapple, lovely soil tones and a nice touch of spice.  Focused and full, with a long, complex and vibrant finish.

 

This comes from roughly 13.5 acres and is made in a distinctly artisan style with native yeast in vat and an extensive upbringing on its fine lees (that spicy zesty quality in the finish of the wine comes from this lees contact). The bottling is usually in the summer following the harvest, but can easily wait until the autumn if the wine isn’t ready. Production averages 2,500-3,000 cases in normal years.
