Kesner Rockbreak Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2015
There’s always a compelling juxtaposition in this wine, between its depth and the liveliness of the natural acids. With the 2015 that inherent tension is at the forefront. Tones of lightly grilled Meyer lemons, green orchard fruit flesh, fresh crème and struck flint. A luxurious mouthfeel that at very first blush belies the verve of the natural acids. Then they take over and thread through the finish, which lasts, and lasts. Intriguing. Fulfilling. Complete. Native fermentation in barrel, natural acids, all used Francois Frères cooperage. Sur lie 16 months.
