Sextant Wines 2016 Santa Lucia Highlands Reserve Chardonnay

The current release of the SLH Chardonnay is as exquisite as ever. Fine contours of white peaches, Anjou pears, and pineapples at the forefront with honeycomb, piecrust, and apricot notes at periphery. Hints of almonds, lemon zest, and brioche appear as well. Silky texture and lively acidity enable kinetic pleasantness on the palate. The finish is clean and modulated as wistful echos of the profile linger on.
