Wayfarer, Wayfarer Vineyard Chardonnay 2020 Fort Ross-Seaview

16.5

Hand-picked. After gentle pressing, the wine settled for 24 hours, followed by racking to barrel. Ambient yeasts guided alcoholic fermentation, with bâtonnage until malolactic fermentation was complete. Aged in barrel for 15 months, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Intriguing, subtle aromas with an attractive, reductive edge allied with classy oak notes on the nose. Rounded, fleshy palate with apple acidity and creamy, lees-aged characters. Distinguished and complex. (AWH)
