Rhys Alesia Chardonnay 2017/2019 Santa Cruz Mountains California
One of the wine world's best kept secrets, the Santa Cruz Mountains have long produced some of the New World's very finest wines. This Chardonnay opens up in the glass with notes of fresh pear, preserved citrus, lemon oil and a light framing of smoky reduction. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, concentrated and textured, built around a racy line of acidity and concluding with a saline and mineral finish. Elegant West Coast Chardonnay that is drinking beautifully.
