Pretty good stuff here. More depth and structure than the 2013 version I tried a few years ago.

Light golden hue. Aromas of lemon peel, lees, white flowers, chalk, and a bit of smoke. With good acidity and absence of prominent new oak, it leans more to the Burgundian end of the spectrum than California. Made from a blend of fruit from Rita’s Crown and Bentrock Vineyards aged in 500 L barrels. 13% ABV.

Blind, I would have been very confused as whether to call it old or new world. It’s light yet well structured, some oak yet great freshness and acidity. At a good place in terms of cost performance and matches the strengths of old/new world.

What can I say other than perfect balance of Chardonnay flavors and winemaking skills with oak. Hail to Rajat and Sashi!
