Snow & Ice - 2016 Chardonnay Watson Ranch, Arnot-Roberts
2016 Chardonnay Watson Ranch, Arnot-Roberts
After a whole day outside in the snow I needed something nice to go along a nice dish of cod.
49 barrels made. The nose is stony and refined with notes of lemon peel, red basil, lemon licorice and spruce needles. Some fine grassy notes after a while. Handsome. Lots of minerals.
The taste is cool and spicy with notes of dried lemons, a hint of apricots, dry fudge and sweet minerals. Crystalline. A very fine acidity. Long. Very fine.
