1772 Chardonnay 2019
The cool 2019 vintage, remained steady through harvest, unfolding to a slow and detailed picking schedule. The crisp acidity, the trademark of the Edna Valley, shines in this vintage. This Chardonnay is barrel fermented and aged, reflecting a rich mouthfeel balanced by a brilliant acidity.
Wine Notes and Pairing Suggestion:
"Being in the shadow of a great vintage like 2018 can hide wines that would normally be considered exceptional in any other year. Such is the case for the 1772 Chardonnay 2019, a wine that possesses that rare combination of focus and grace that so many California Chardonnays simply ignore. The pear, golden delicious apple and nectarine flavors are what makes this wine so delicious now, but its bright acidity and long finish remind all of us this wine would love another year or two to show its true potential. This type of wine makes all rich seafood dishes taste better, and a Grilled Turbot with Celery Leaf Salsa Verde dish is a special evening waiting to happen."
