Dierberg Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Maria Valley|
This is Dierberg Vineyard classic. For those familiar with the vineyard's Chardonnay, there will be plenty to like in this wine. Its purity of fruit is deep but quiet, leaning on stone fruit and citrus expressions with only a hint of tropical notes in the background. The palate has a wonderful broad feel that connotes California, but never strays away from its backbone of refreshing acidity.
Broad peach, cherimoya and almond aromas are cut by Meyer lemon, orange peel and a lightly grassy element on the nose of this bottling. A very racy acidity frames the sip, where lemon-peel flavors slice deep into the finish.
