First time trying this - for me it exhibited more Viognier attributes at first - florals and a slight sweetness - but citrus and nutty notes followed. Rich and slightly viscous - stronger aromatics and a decent finish developed with time in glass. I’d like to revisit this in a year or two.

Banfield Vineyard,single vineyard. My favorite Arista Chardonnay yet. Slightly lush, lemon - hint of butter, Indian spices, vanilla and pepper. Loved this one, and I'm not a big fan of the lush on the palate whites. 9.2
