2019 Peterson Vineyard Chardonnay
Light straw in color, this is a perfect glass of Chardonnay which showcases the best qualities of the Santa Lucia Highlands. A tropical nose opens with mango, pineapple, guava, pear, chamomile and wet stone. Next comes the firm palate with pretty, stone fruit flavors, some spicy vanilla oak and moderate acidity. The finish is long and linear, suggesting aging until late 2020 and enjoying through 2026.
