From Parker: "The 2019 Chardonnay Oak Grove Vineyard has a unique personality that combines powerful exotic fruit with tangy energy and a shimmery saline quality, derived from a year's maturation in barrel and then stainless steel. Guava, peaches, lilac and beeswax aromas burst from the glass, and the textural palate, which continues to change and evolve as it spends time in the glass, demands your attention with its rich but precise fruit. This unabashedly hedonistic Chardonnay has the intensity and energy to age well, but that youthful, gregarious fruit is hard to resist!"
Winemaking Note: This wine was fermented in tank, but then aged for a year in oak barrels. The only difference between this and the Tank Fruit bottling below, is that the Tank Fruit was fermented in barrel and then put into a stainless steel tank for a year. This might seem like a small matter, but the difference in the wines is significant, and both are stunning.
