2018 Bailarin Chardonnay Manchester Ridge Vineyard Mendocino Ridge
San Francisco Wine Panel Score 94 Points
The aromas of this distinctive bottling are a medley of baked green apple, fresh golden apple, green melon, honey, chamomile, vanilla wafer and nougat scents poised above a chalky mineral undercurrent. On the palate, those chalky mineral notes achieve a chiseled balance with flavors of golden apple, honey, lemon curd, apple core and vanilla wafer. Everything comes on strong on the finish, where golden apple, fresh apple skin, honey-lemon tea chamomile, vanilla and a hint of hazelnut get focused and uplifted by the mineral notes. Perfectly food-balanced, it is ready to enjoy.
