2017 Belharra "The Search" Chardonnay, Knights Valley, Sonoma

30.00

99 cases produced, 50% french oak/stainless storage, partial malolactic fermentation, filtered 14.5%

White stone and lychee on the nose, a crushed oyster-shell salinity rises into a brûléed center structure, with a lemon and honeysuckle finish. A touch of tropical fruit still marks it as a warmer-climate Chardonnay, but the interaction of other nuances is the driver of this wine. Harvested September 9th, the clone 4 Chardonnay comes from a rockier section of the block near the creek. Barrel-fermented and aged 11 months, we are pleased to present a consistently crowd-pleasing Chardonnay.
