Peay Vineyards Chardonnay 'Sonoma Coast' 2011
Our Estate Chardonnay always has an intensity and bright beam of minerality that harkens to our cold spot on the far West Sonoma Coast. Some years there can be a little fat in the front of the palate that becomes more focused as the wine carries to the back of the mouth. The 2011 Estate Chardonnay does not have that fruity, fat or rich characteristic. It features yeasty, limestone, and quince inflected qualities. There is some pear in the nose but the toasty notes become more powerful once on the palate and pronounced with some time in a decanter. It is medium-bodied with a clean and long finish. One of my favorite wines we have made.
