Julicher Chardonnay 2011 Martinborough 13.5%
Barrel ferment, lees contact 15% New French oak
N: Every ounce a Chardonnay with warm, ripe stone fruit and citrus bouquet, spiced oak layer with wood and vanillin notes; moderate complexity, youthful.
P: Reflects what the nose suggests with a noticeable citrus fruit flavor: Grape fruit peel and flesh then stone fruits, oak and complexity. Medium+ acidity promotes freshness on the palate; medium+ length. A more elegant expression with a light silty soil suggestion; balanced and well made.
