Peay Estate Chardonnay 2018
The 2018 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay reinforces the impression that has been building over the past two vintages about this blend’s potential. We winnowed down the outside fruit to less than 20% and kept total production small at 550 cases. The remaining 80% of the blend is Chardonnay grown on our Estate vineyard and the structure and profile of the Sonoma CoastChardonnay is very much one of a Peay Estate Chardonnay. The nose is floral and powerful. Some baked pear and apple notes sit deep in the bottom of the glass.
"The 2018 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast opens delicately with hints of green pears, white blossoms, saline and stone with wafts of lemon peel. The palate is light-bodied, tangy, uplifted and mineral-driven with a linear feel and precise finish." 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
