2016 Hanzell Farm Chardonnay The Ramos Selection
Intense lemon yellow. Powerful nose with tons of lemon and lime zest followed up by some tropical fruit nuances, honeysuckle, lychees and some wet gravel. Mouthwatering acidity (7/10) and medium bodied. Layered palate with an attack of orange marmalade, green apples, chalky minerality, stone fruits and tanginess throughout. Long and lingering finish.
