Golden Grove Chardonnay 2013
The freshness kept drawing me back. A portion was barrel fermented with indigenous yeast and only new French oak was used.
Think delicious peach, almond meal and a delicate creamy profile courtesy of that oak. A squeeze of lemon appears just at the finish where some cashews sneak up. When looking at a great Chardonnay it needs to be layered and have complexity. Those boxes have been ticked here.
Nicely balanced leaving a long and satisfying finish.
