2016 Peake Ranch Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley USA

$49.99 USD

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Santa Barbara has an open nose of soft Golden Delicious apple, poached pear and lemon pith with hints of baker's yeast, toast and sliced almonds. Medium-bodied, it has a good core of ripe tree fruits with juicy acidity and touches of honeycomb coming through on the finish. (EB) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark Rich aromas of brioche and sweet butter are cut by chalky lemon pith and candied citrus rind on the nose of this blend of fruit from John Sebastiano and Sierra Madre vineyards. The chalky mouthfeel presents flavors of grapefruit, toasted croissant and a drawn-butter element toward the finish. (MK) Inner quote mark
