2017 Ceritas Chardonnay Porter-Bass Vineyard, USA, California, Sonoma Coast, Wine Review
One of my favorite Chardonnays (both the winery and this vineyard). Light golden in color with some green hues, clear and bright. The nose is smoky with minerality, slight vanilla and grapefruits. Medium to full bodied. Slightly oily texture. Good acidity. On the palate, minerality and slight grapefruit. Lemon candy on the long finish. 12.9% abv. This is still drinking youthfully. It should drink well for another ten to fifteen more years. Great on its own, this will work well with lighter foods but also seafood and even fried chicken.
