Aubert UV SL Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
A barrel sample aging in 80% new barrels, the 2017 Chardonnay UV-SL is a little broody right now, slowly revealing notes of warm apricots, apple pie and pear tart with suggestions of crème caramel, honey toast, sassafras and lime blossoms with a hint of candied popcorn. The palate is full-bodied with a wicked backbone of freshness lifting the densely packed stone fruit and savory layers, finishing very long and yeasty.
Pure-tasting, offering vibrant, well-structured flavors of green pear, mango, apple and red peach. Shows lively minerality midpalate, with a finish of crushed stone and spice notes. Drink now through 2025. 686 cases made.
