Day-bright with a youthful, straw-yellow hue of moderate intensity, this wine opens with hints of Meyer lemon, crushed seashell, honeydew, toasted almond and chamomile. The palate is driven by an acidity level that commands attention, contributing to a mouthfeel that gives density without weight. The defining impression is marked by a coastal salinity that is uniquely expressive of the site. This is a structured wine with balance, tension and precision from start to finish that delivers on the high expectations of Camp Meeting Ridge Estate Vineyard.

Wine EnthusiastFrom an extreme, cool-climate estate vineyard, this Chardonnay is remarkably complex, golden in color and semi-rich in lemon chiffon and intense caramel. Yet it holds back ever so slightly on the lusciousness by offering crisp, tingling acidity. Orange blossom delights in terms of aroma and flavor, with an accent of fennel, too.
