Sixto Moxee Chardonnay 2018
More caramelized lemon, honeysuckle, flower oil, and toasted bread notes emerge from the 2018 Chardonnay Moxee, and where the Frenchman Hills is more reserved and reticent, this is up-front and showy, with beautiful fruit and opulence. Possessing good concentration, impeccable balance, and a lively spine of acidity, it's going to evolve for a solid decade in cold cellars.
Bright, light yellow. Lively if reticent scents of lemon, lime, herbal tea and minerals. Even juicier than the Frenchman Hills example, but also reveals lovely umami salinity and good texture. Intense, sharply delineated flavors of beeswax, chamomile, lemon curd and spices carry through to a firm finish featuring sneaky length. This is always the highest in acidity of the Sixto Chardonnays.
