Still very young, reminiscent of a grand cru Chablis. 🍏 green tropical notes, lemon curd, white flowers, sea salt salinity and medium plus acidity. I feel the best example of American Chardonnay

American grand cru burgundy. Rhys only makes two single vineyard chardonnays and I thought horseshoe was my favorite until I tasted this thought provoking wine. Medium plus acidity, tart green apples, tropical notes of pineapple, mango, papaya, hazelnuts and hazelnut skins, dried peanuts, slight oxidized and a very small amount of reduction that went away after second glass. Stunning wine!

That's more like what I was expecting. Fresh, energetic, and alive. Full of lemon zest and minerality.
