2016 Presqu'ile "Presqu'ile Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Previously $30)

SKU #1463149 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Presqu'ile Vineyard is bright, focused and very nicely articulated. Citrus, almond, floral and saline notes add to a feel of precision and tension. The 15% new oak shapes the wine's texture and flavor profile, but is very well judged. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Presqu'ile Vineyard opens with mineral notions of crushed stone and toast, fleshing out to honey-drizzled apples, sliced almond and white peach plus a Greek yogurt tinge. Medium-bodied, the palate gives up pretty, honeyed fruits with very tangy acidity and a long, nutty finish. Decant both of these Presqu'ile Chardonnays, as they will show much more with time and air. (EB) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "As our site has gained maturity, the distinctive character of our Chardonnay has become apparent, and beginning with the 2013 vintage we felt it was time to broadcast this singular voice. The sandy soils of our Estate result in a taut, mineral-laced expression of Chardonnay, an old-world sense of balance and tension allied to an aromatic and textural profile that is unmistakably Presqu’ile. Though radiant now, ultimately, this is one for the cellar. We employ traditional, natural techniques - native yeast fermentation, native malolactic conversion and sur lie aging. Practices which elevate and enhance the distinctive character of this region, accenting its fine balance between richness and vivacity."
