Bloc and Barrel Chardonnay 2020

Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo County, Central Coast, California, United StatesThis Californian chardonnay is very much in the classic idiom: equal parts fruit and winemaking. Ripe lemon, mandarin, and melon are joined by buttered popcorn, sweet vanilla, and toasted wood, from full malolactic conversion and aging in French and American oak. It's very much more is more, but still well made and with enough freshness to keep everything in balance.Tasted: 26 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
