2017 Sta Rita Hills Chardonnay, Racines Wine
I tasted this beauty a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed. I bought a couple of bottles and I thought it was time to test drive one.
The nose still is racy and spicy with lovely notes of ripe tangerines, smoke, lemon licorice and sand. Very deep and fine.
The taste is tight and structured with notes of grilled lemons, sand, smoke and tangerines. A very fine acidity. Long and lingering. Lovely now but I think it will be even better with 6+ years in the cellar.
