Staying true to its roots, the 2018 Lucia Soberanes Vineyard Chardonnay showcases the work of vines pushing deep into the rocky, granite-laden soils of this site. Greenish lemon in color, this wine remains tightly wound when it first splashes into the glass. Notes of crushed rock and flint are present, but as the minutes pass, the wine truly begins to express itself as ripe pear, red apple, and citrus blossom fill the glass. A peaceful, uninterrupted 15-month aging on the lees took place in 60-gallon French oak barrels and a 320 gallon foudré, giving richness and volume to this wine. Fresh, balanced acidity disciplines and tempers its complex flavors , adding focus and intensity to this Chardonnay’s already extensive repertoire. Though the wine drinks beautifully in its youth, a decade of patience will demonstrate how beautifully this wine matures.
