This wine begins with opulent tropical aromas of lychee and guava, along with notes of Meyer lemon and apricot. As it opens up, hints of toasted French oak, vanilla bean, crème fraiche and brioche add a sweet-and-spicy sense of nuance and complexity. Though silky and plush on the palate, high-toned acidity keeps everything fresh and lively, while adding poise and brightness to the generous quince and lemon custard flavors.

The 2018 Chardonnay Grower Collection El Novillero is lifted and perfumed, with soaring aromatics that give it both lift and very distinctive exotic quality. White flowers, mint, white pepper, green apple all grace this finely-cut, taut Chardonnay from Chappellet.

Savory snap accents the baked apple and peach pastry flavors in this juicy version. Spice and cream notes show on the pillowy finish. Drink now.
