2019 Chardonnay, El Diablo Vineyard
A beautiful vintage for El Diablo Vineyard, it stands out as a very floral rendition, showcasing the unique Montrachet clone (72%) with the Robert Young clone (28%).
The Montrachet part of the blend is simply elegant with jasmine, candied almond, and anise on the nose. The Robert Young selection, however, lends dimension and tension to the wine providing stone fruit and green apple on the palate. A unique hallmark of this Chardonnay is the ability to both have a refreshing presence on the palate while delicately holding to a rich core supplied from the sunny summer days on Eastside Road.
