The 2017 Teresa's continues to define California's Unoaked Chardonnay category. Crisp and vibrant, yet amazingly luscious; it showcases how Chardonnay does not need flashy oak or malolactic fermentation to be distinct and delicious. It's focused with intensely bright and lifted tropical aromas that are offset with slightly savory tones. Then comes the texture, balance and persistence. It's mouthwatering with refreshing acidity that contrasts its surprisingly robust and weighted mid-palate. Slight tannins add subtle tension and pull the wine into a persistent, serious finish. It's awesome.

Wine EnthusiastThirst quenching in lemon, anise and wet stone, this is a steely, focused white that will appeal to fans of the unoaked style. It finishes on a lingering baked-bread tone.

Wine SpectatorCitrus zest hints accent the crunchy apple and green peach flavors in this crisp style. Sea salt and minerally notes show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,400 cases made.
