Noria Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard, Sonoma Coast CA, 2017 750 ml
Chardonnay modeled after a style of Japanese sake called “Junmai-Ginjo” Elegant aromas of apricot, lime, golden apple, honeysuckle as well as nuances of cardamom, tarragon, and basil. The decorous citrus flavor quickly develops on the palate. Lush, vibrant acidity is balanced well with a voluptuous mouthfeel. Hints of honey, caramel, and bay leaf add complexity and melt into a long finish.
