2020 Nuthouse Chardonnay
With the majority of this vintage’s chardonnay being from our Lonestar Vineyard, the aromas of lemon verbena, slate and allspice are pronounced and forthcoming. This vibrancy is matched by aging in puncheon barrels to provide its luscious texture and oak tannin for balance and lengthy finish, making for a perfect addition to the cellar or highlighting a celebration.
“The 2020 Chardonnay Nuthouse, from blocks planted in 1999 and 2000, is perfumed and delicious! Flint and iodine nuances give way to peach, white pepper and singular herbal undertones on the nose. The palate is light-bodied yet wonderfully creamy, offering a balance of ripe, spicy fruit and flinty tones. It has plenty of focused acidity and a long, savory finish.” — Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate, 93 Points
