A barrel sample, the 2017 Chardonnay Edward James Estate bursts out of the glass with exuberant white peaches, grapefruit and lemon meringue pie scents with touches of honeycomb, fresh ginger and almond croissant. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating spicy and savory layers with great vibrancy and a refreshing finish. 600 cases are expected to be produced and released in August 2019.
