Rhys Mt. Pajaro Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
|California, Central Coast, Santa Cruz Mountains
The 2017 Chardonnay Mt Pajaro Vineyard is also more reticent aromatically yet has beautiful purity and precision in its citrus blossom, salty minerality, and white flower-driven aromas and flavors. It's another nicely textured, beautifully balanced Chardonnay with loads of potential, it just needs another year or two of bottle age.
The 2017 Chardonnay Mt. Pajaro Vineyard is soft, supple and engaging, with lovely tangerine peel, almond, dried flower and herb notes. This level of complexity is just remarkable for a wine from young vines in its first commercial release. I can't wait to see what future vintages hold.
