Mayacamas Chardonnay Napa 2018
This is almost an anti-California Chardonnay with a light-weight profile, bright acidity, and a streak of minerality. No oak and butter to be had here! Some vintages carry a little more weight, but the 2018 has a focus on a flinty, seashell characteristic that contrasts the baked apple, pear, and browned caramel flavors. Citrus and mouthwatering acidity tie the wine together and this should age for another 10 years or so.
