The 2016 UV-SL Vineyard Chardonnay is tightly wound. After a couple swirls of the glass aromas of green apple candy, lychee, honeysuckle and sweet herbs appear. This wine is vibrating with tension and energy. There is a saline -like density and the structure is shaped by minerality. Ripe pears, pomelo and green tea oil flavors release some of the tension. This towering wine has much more to show. Decant well or cellar confidently for 10-15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

The 2016 Chardonnay UV-SL has a very sexy nose of apple pie and apricot preserves over suggestions of coriander seed, fennel and chalk dust, plus a waft of orange blossoms. The palate simply sings with vibrant stone fruit and citrus peel flavors with a racy backbone cutting through the satiny texture, finishing with loads of lingering spice notes.

Well-honed, offering layers of concentrated white fruit flavors that are dominated by a deft mix of citrus, crisp apple and peach. The minerally finish lingers, with fresh acidity. Best from 2020 through 2025.
