The 2018 Chardonnay Mt. Harlan is a solid step up over the Viognier and offers a classy bouquet of spiced apple, white flowers, and brioche, with a terrific sense of chalky minerality. Medium-bodied and elegant, with a vibrant, pure texture, it's beautifully done and a serious Chardonnay.
The 2018 Chardonnay (Mt. Harlan) is bright, focused and translucent. A wine of striking character, the Mt. Harlan Chardonnay captures the essence of this rugged site in its savory complexity. In 2018, the Mt. Harlan is a bit lighter than it usually is, with a distinctly airy feel, and yet it has plenty of personality. Dried pear, mint, citrus oil, sage and dried flowers are some of the notes that develop over time.
This plush white is filled with red peach and apple pastry flavors that are buttery and well-spiced, ending with a fruity finish that is spicy and rich-tasting.
