2017 Lincourt Chardonnay Rancho Santa Rosa, Sta. Rita Hills
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Aromatics of faint honeysuckle flower and toasted graham with accents of ripe pineapple fill the nose. On the palate, our 2017 Rancho Santa Rosa Chardonnay is balanced with outstanding varietal character that exudes flavors of lemon curd, toasted marshmallows, and hints of honeycomb that linger on the finish.
