2019 Wooden Dolly Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

Bold aromas of Madagascar vanilla bean, savory spice, and toast burst from the glass followed by hints of caramel and matchstick. Tart pineapple, brioche, and lemon curd meet lively, fresh acid which balances out substantial oak imparted richness. Giving this wine plenty of air reveals a fantastic pallet weight, texture, and mouthfeel, a great reminder that Chardonnay done right can be muscular, powerful, and elegant all in the same sip. One can reasonably say this wine has much more in common with well made white Burgundy than it does with the typical “buttery” chardonnays of California. Drink this gem now or cellar for 5+ years.
