Lifevine Chardonnay 2019
The nose is fresh and focused with loads of golden apple and honeydew melon. Secondary fruit flavors of nectarine, lemon, and peach skin offer added complexity to the nose. Honey and wax lead to the oak influence that shows flavors of cinnamon and vanilla. The oak impact is quite integrated at this point and shows more structure than flavor. While this wine is more driven by fruit and oak, there is a subtle hint of mineral on the palate that adds a nice accent to the more dominant flavors in the wine.
Flinty aromas and slightly earthy flavors blend with herb and green-apple notes for an almost lean, Old World expression in this full-bodied wine that was made from organic grapes.
