Lafond SRH Chardonnay 2015
A small crop compared to the large crop in 2014. The vines are showing the effect of the continuing drought. Very concentrated flavors with great fruit intensity.

Wine SpectatorButtery, with plenty of creamy accents to the ripe apple, pear tart and lemon curd flavors. The richly spiced finish has hints of savoriness and toasty notes. Drink now through 2021. 2,390 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastHoneyed aromas of walnut oil, baked yellow apples and sea salt show on the nose of this bottling by Bruce McGuire and crew. Juicy apple-cinnamon and pound cake flavors show on the sip, but it's the salty edge that keep it buoyant and savory, like a perfectly roasted chicken.
