Lynmar Winery Quail Hill Chardonnay 2018

SKU: 3103001346017220Categories: ,


A clear pale straw color in the glass, the Quail Hill Chardonnay emanates vibrant aromas of fresh lemon curd, Jasmine flower, honeycomb and tangerine peel. On the palate, flavors of lemon meringue and kiwi emerge leading to hints of nutmeg and wet stone. Bright acidity carries into a long finish, highlighting notes of lemongrass and pie crust. Lots of exotic citrus, pear, flower, and honeyed minerality notes define the 2018 Chardonnay Quail Hill Vineyard, a medium-bodied, juicy, elegant Chardonnay that picks up attractive green almond and nutty nuances on the palate. It can be drunk over the coming 5-6 years with no issues. Rich oak may momentarily lead the way here, but it is quickly joined by the deep, optimally ripened fruit that is part and parcel of all the Lynmar Chardonnays, and, by the time this weighty, well-balanced wine finishes, its conspicuous toastiness is equaled by lasting flavors of crisp, yet juicy apples. Like its cellarmates from 2018, it will evolve favorably for some years to come, but we see it peaking a bit sooner and likely reaching its best around its fifth or sixth birthday
