Darioush Signature Chardonnay 2018
Signature Chardonnay shows remarkable harmony and balance in its youth, characteristic of the finest examples of this noble variety. From its alluring aromatic entry to its persistent mineral-laden finish, the 2018 vintage shows impressive symmetry and delineation. Honeycrisp apple and Bosc pear flavors are energized by clean, bright layers of fleshy citrus and stony minerality. Our cellar regimen of French oak fermentation and sur-lie aging lends additional complexity with hints of baking spice, toasted brioche, and hazelnuts; while gentle racking preserves the wine's integrity and nuance without fining or filtration.
