Hope Estate 2013 Mountain Wash Vineyard Chardonnay
This is a complex, balanced, and fresh Chardonnay. The French oak fermentation has added complexity without dulling the wine, while the crisp citrus characters keeps the palate refreshed.
"The 2013 Mountain Wash Chardonnay is scented of Golden Delicious apples fresh peaches and spiced pears with an undercurrent of lightly browned toast. Light to medium-bodied with plenty of youthful stone fruit and apple-laced flavors it has a racy acid backbone and a medium to long finish. Drink it now to 2017." - 87 Points, Wine Advocate, 2014
