|Label Name||:||Chardonnay Old Guard|
|Sub Region||:||Central Coast|
|Capacity||:||750 ml - Standard Bottle|
|Rating||:||JD95 - Jeb Dunnuck||Tasting Note||:||The 2016 Chardonnay Old Guard comes from the oldest vines of the estate and is brought up all in older oak. It offers an almost Alsatian Riesling-like minerality and green citrus streak, with more orchard fruits, white flowers, and classic salinity coming through with time in the glass. Deep, rich, and beautifully textured on the palate, it has vibrant acidity, plenty of density and mid-palate oomph, and a great finish. It too will keep for a decade or more, and I suspect it will be even better with a year or two in bottle.|
