2019 UV-SL Vineyard Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

We refer to this wine as the “chameleon,” as it evolves and morphs in each glass.  The combination of climate, soil, and rare clones planted at UV-SL produce kaleidoscopic, site-driven nuances.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

The nose on the 2019 UV-SL is one of sheer class. Aromas of green apple oil, pastry cream, and lemon preserves develop in the glass, accented with scents of toasted brioche, tangerine zest and oyster shell. A crystalline inner brightness resonates at the core of this wine, draped with layers of richness that extend across the palate and crescendo to a long and luxurious finish. This wine drinks well now but will evolve and benefit from cellar aging. Enjoy over the next 5 to 10 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
