I think if they cut back their oak and ripeness they'd make a stellar Chardonnay. This had all the pieces in place but was just a bit too much.

Fresh and soft mouthfeel. Beautiful toasty fruit aromatics

Balanced with acidity and fruit and some minerality.

Medium gold color. Excellent nose that resembles a white burgundy as it’s filled with butter, cream, and mango. Some funk on the palate that is unfortunate. Not a ton of flavor and somewhat bitter at the end. Medium+ finish.

Nice bright gold color. Nose was rather muted but does have a little honeysuckle. More acidic than I remember, with nice meyer lemon and even a hint of spice at the end. Paired nicely with our java pork tenderloin meal, which is very sweet & spicy.

Lemon with a fair bit of wood, but not overripe fruit and enough minerality and acidity to keep it pleasant.

Lemon, earth, and a slight hint of pear on the nose. Smells extremely refreshing and vibrant. Gentle and medium body, with a nice tartness. Shortish finish, but my favorite Sojourn wine.
