Walt Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Demure and focused, this wine is opulently textured in creamy vanilla and pear. A thread of pineapple weaves through the midpalate, nuanced in oak and balanced in weight. Throughout, an effusive nose of apple and orange blossom permeate.
The appellation 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast comes from a mix of Bob's Ranch and Sangiacomo vineyard fruit and spent 15 months in 30% new French oak. It's slightly softer and more forward, yet still has terrific apple and spiced orange fruit, a kiss of background oak, medium-bodied richness, and a great finish.
