"Signature" Chardonnay, 2016

Produced by Trinitas Cellars

Sweet aromas of lemon curd, dandelion, beeswax, honey, and vanilla waft from this golden colored beauty of a wine. The palate follows in tow, with intense flavors of Meyer lemon and honeycomb, which are accompanied by an incredibly satiny texture that is as smooth as can be. A solid core of acid keeps this focused despite its terrific heft, and drives this to a persistent finish of toasted vanilla. It’s a wonderful combination of intense fruit, texture, and energy.
