Byron Chardonnay 2013

Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesAnother dry year has led to fine concentration of flavors reminiscent of stone fruit, brown spice, honey and a delicious wet stone minerality. Fresh crisp and balanced this chardonnay slides down like a silk scarf on a bannister. Some 30 percent is aged in French oak, of which only seven percent is new, while the lees is stirred weekly for six months. Fruit, texture, style and length. Super value here.Tasted: 30 October 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
