Radio-Coteau Wingtine Chardonnay 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
The 2016 Wingtine Chardonnay expresses crisp yellow pear, and zesty finger limes which complement the strong acid backbone, a hallmark of the site. Lush notes of dried apricot and ripe honeydew add depth and richness to the nose and palate. A pleasantly unexpected tone of chamomile and honey distinguishes this wine from past vintages. Reinforcing this hint of sweetness are notes of baking spices, piecrust, and toasted almond. Finishing with a savory herb whisper, the palate is rich and lingering, while the acidity keeps the mouthfeel tight.
