Tasting Notes

The 2017 KRUTZ Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay offers a lifted aromatics of lemon oil and orange blossom. A product of dense, rocky soils , the wine is flinty and mineral-driven to its core. Its focused acidity bursts with energy as it dances on the palate. Each windswept grape cluster delivers immense concentration that is carefully extracted through gentle pressing. Minimal stirring of the lees over the course of a 15-month slumber in the cellar provides this chardonnay with a focused intensity. In the glass, this wine comes to life with a flawless balance of fruit, density and length, all of which combine to produce a delicate, and rewarding tension.
