Fresh Key lime aromas meet with touches of guava, plumeria and lemongrass on the steely nose of this bottling. There's a great sizzle of acidity to the sip, leaning a bit more toward Sauvignon Blanc than Chardonnay, with flavors of guava gum, green papaya, lime and grass.
Offering up notes of baked apples and ripe peaches with toasty/yeasty nuances, the 2016 Chardonnay has a medium body and good core of uncomplicated oak-kissed stone fruit, finishing on a spicy note.
