This was a great comparison drinking side by side with a Rhys Chard. From similar areas south of San Francisco. This is a bit more austere although that isn't really the right word. Perhaps not as flamboyant? In any event, this is fantastic. Light golden in color. The nose is great with lemon curd, slight peaches, and a bit of lime. On the palate, this is medium bodied with crisp acidity. Almost seamless from the first sip to the smooth finish. The lemon curds follow thru to the palate. Long finish. This is very food friendly and will work with all but the heaviest of foods. Great on its own too. Still young, this will evolve and mature though may not get "better". It should be great for another decade and more. At $40, this is a great value in Chardonnay.
