Routestock Chardonnay Route 121 2019
From the winery: In an effort to keep the wine showing the exotic freshness that it showed in tank and barrel, we stopped malo-lactic fermentation about 75% of the way through, thus retaining higher acidity, freshness and vitality. The wine shows a beautiful light straw color with seductive aromas of lemon curd, lemon thyme and ginger. The wine fills the palette beautifully with a brightness combined ever so nicely with richness that also shows the Carneros region's strengths to the best degree. This gives way to an unusually long finish.
