The nose is reminiscent of Meyer lemons, preserved then diced up later in the year for seasoning in a meal, wet stones and Kaffir lime blossoms waft in and out as well. The wine builds in body and texture as it sits in your mouth. Layers of Kaffir lime, guava, and
pineapple pour in at first, and then the light creamy texture of whipped lemon curd fills in the flavor palate. The finish is clean and crisp, lingering enough to make you want another sip…go
ahead, we'll make more next year, don't worry.
"The 2011 Chardonnay is a serious wine for the money. Honey, almonds, smoke, hazelnuts and pears burst from the glass in this rich, broad shouldered wine. Jayson Woodbridge sources this fruit from vineyards in and around the Santa Lucia Highlands. I am not sure how he does it, but this is an absolutely gorgeous wine for the money."
