2014 Ram’s Gate Carneros Chardonnay

14.3% alc., pH 3.30, TA 0.61, 700 cases, $36. · Moderate golden yellow color in the glass. Aromas of apple, lemon peel, buttery brioche and nutty oak. A fruitforward style, with flavors of lemon, apple and pineapple, underlain with a pastry cream note. Wellendowed and rather luscious, yet offering balanced acidity and deft barrel management.
