2018 J. Wilkes Chardonnay
Santa Maria Valley
Complex aromas of lime blossom, green apple, browned butter, ripe pear and hints of clean ocean air.
2018 was one of the longest, coolest growing seasons in almost a decade allowing the wine to be both restrained and incredibly flavorful. Concentrated fruit and minerals show on the mid-palate with a lively and bright finish.
Will match with both delicate and rich dishes - Shrimp tempura, Caesar salad or hard ripe cheese.
