Pale yellow in color, the 2020 Arroyo Vista Chardonnay exhibits intriguing aromas of paperwhites, Meyer lemon, ripe apple, white peach, brioche, and crème brûlée. The rich palate texture is derived from the use of classic Burgundian techniques, such as primary and malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and weekly stirring of the lees during aging.
Clean lines of lemon, chamomile and sea salt make for a tightly wound yet engaging nose on this bottling. There's a more viscous mouthfeel than expected on the palate, where honey and pear flavors ride brisk acidity into the salty, lingering finish.
Toasted spices, dried ginger and dried pineapple notes are intense and harmonious on a supple frame, with a note of juicy tangerine and green apple on the finish. Drink now.
