2019 McCrea Vineyard Chardonnay Sonoma Mountain
Green-tinged, pale yellow. Elevated and elegant perfumes of both fresh morning citrus blossom and just peeled citrus rind that are so unique to McCrea. Perfectly ripe stone fruits woven with chalk undertones lead to an approach that fills and cleanses the palate transitioning to a finish that is luxurious, long and lasting. A bright acid driven return lifts the slightly supple textural aspects of the wine and is a clear marker of the vintage.Join To Purchase
I always love the Chardonnay from this site, and the 2019 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard doesn't disappoint, offering incredible purity, precision, and obvious minerality. More white peach, lemon, white flowers, and crushed stone notes emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a layered, mineral-laced mouthfeel, a touch of toasted nuts on the palate, and a fabulous finish. It's another incredible wine from winemaker Jason Kesner that will evolve for 10-15 years in cold cellars.
The 2019 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard is fresh, perfumed and beautifully lifted. Lemon confit, marzipan, dried flowers and chamomile all grace this gentle, understated Chardonnay from Kistler. Bright mineral notes punctuate the brilliant finish. Floral and saline hints are especially prominent. The McCrea vineyard designate emerges from the portion of the vineyard that is rich in white silica soils, while fruit from volcanic soils go into the Sonoma Mountain bottling.
The 2019 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard is soft, bright and energetic. It has delicate aromas of quince paste, hazelnuts, stone and white flowers. Its silky, expansive palate has incredible detail, precision and lift that carries the long, mineral-driven finish.
