Zaca Mesa Chardonnay 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rather ripe and with barrel fermenty sweetness with white floral leesy notes a hint of flint over apple, mango and pear fruit. With a nice little mineral note early on the palate then this opens up nicely, broad yet transparent with integrated acidity, fairly tense but not bright, finishing with a gently rolling bit of soft wood influence over tart apple and slightly mango fruit. The finish has cleansing energy, oak on the nose is present but very subtle and integrated in the mouth. A bit tropical but nicely proportioned. 88pts
