Rivers-Marie Joy Road Vineyard Chardonnay 2018
Crushed citrus, acacia flowers, salty minerality, and a kiss of honeysuckle all emerge from the 2018 Chardonnay Joy Road Vineyard, another vibrant, racy, yet concentrated white from this team. Not far off the style of the Purrington Rued Vineyard release with it's more focused, pretty style, it's going to keep for a decade or more.
The 2018 Chardonnay Joy Road Vineyard is another wonderfully nuanced wine in this range. Lemon confit, white flowers, butter, mint and a touch of reduction all grace the Joy Road. Finessed and exquisite to the core, the Joy Road is another sublime Chardonnay in this range. In 2018, the Joy Road has an unctuous feel that is hugely appealing.
