2016 Lincourt Carol Ann Chardonnay, Sta. Rita Hills
Vibrant aromas of lemon zest and toasted vanilla wafer meld together with a medley of ripe peach and nectarine tones. This Chardonnay has bright acidity that is balanced by the perfect complement of French oak adding a touch of confection to the finish.
