Black Kite Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
Exhibits a charming mix of buttery oak, rich fruit, baking spice nuances and an overall sense of harmony and finesse. The core apple, melon and apricot flavors are intense without being weighty, and the finish displays a measure of grace. Drink now. 201 cases made.
This is a ripe, succulent white, dark golden in color, that's lush and expansive on the palate in fleshy tropical and stone fruit. Toasted oak comes forward on the finish, accentuating the wine's nearly full-bodied nature, never getting in the way of the minerality.
