In the glass, this unoaked Chardonnay from Monterey has a pale yellow core that’s so light I could read a book through it ————–> The edges are pure gold and wrapped by a thin translucent halo….
A sniff is bright and vibrant with green apples and lemon juice with a touch of banana hidden in the background….
The palate starts zesty with lemon peel that carries into some minerality and dusty slate-rock…. A chew and a swish open this thing up into a mid-palate full of fresh peaches with more of the banana I got on the nose ——–> The wine finishes BRIGHT with zesty lime juice and a long green apple tart ending….
If you’re a glutton for an overly oaked, bastardized bottle of Chard; keep on walkin’…. That said ——–> If you’re into a pure, minimalistic approach to the grape then this lil guy from Wrath Wines is your jam!!! This wine is fresh and zippy and FULL of character…. 🎧🎧🎧 listen to this wine with something vivacious like Blind Melon – Tones of Home
