Wayfarer Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
Wayfarer Vineyard is 30 acres of Goldridge soil hidden among winding mountain roads and redwoods, two coastal ridges from the Pacific—an extraordinary place to grow profound chardonnay. This luminous blend of four clones achieves a beautiful interplay of minerality and aromatics.
This wine emits a pale yellow-green/silver glow. Wayfarer Vineyard's cool coastal influence is evident in the wine's complex aromatics, layered texture, and impeccable balance. An interplay of citrus, orange blossom, Asian pear, white peach, and flinty aromatics echoes and expands on the palate. Flavors are lifted and extended by acidity that washes over the sumptuous structure framing the expansive mid-palate. A finish of tangerine and acacia with hints of roasted almond and honeysuckle lingers in the mouth. Generous and complex, this wine will continue to evolve and open.
