Sixto Uncovered Chardonnay 2014
Wine SpectatorDynamic, yet sleek and refined, driven by a core of minerally acidity that meshes with the delicately complex apple, Meyer lemon and spicy yeast accents that linger long on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 1,835 cases made.
Wine AdvocateA blend of all three of the single vineyards, the 2014 Chardonnay Uncovered is every bit as good as the single vineyards. Apple, white flowers, brioche and toasted nut characteristics flow to a rich, textured, sexy Chardonnay that's just a straight up joy to drink. The 2012s from this estate are still fresh and vibrant, so I suspect these will all have a solid 4- to 5-year drink window, if not longer. There's roughly 1,200 cases of this killer Chardonnay, and readers owe it to themselves to give one of these a try.
