Chardonnay, Peay Vineyards
The 2018 Chardonnay (Sonoma Coast) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine. Lemon confit, mint, apricot and a kiss of new French oak add character to a silky, exceptionally polished wine that hits all the right notes. About three quarters of this fruit is from the estate. The 2018 is such a classy and well-balanced wine.
