Failla, 2016 Failla Chardonnay Haynes Vineyard

"Another sensational white is the 2016 Chardonnay Haynes Vineyard which is from a site in Coombsville. One of the more pure, seamless, and finesse-driven in the lineup, it has incredibly pure aromas and flavors of white peach, citrus blossom, white flowers, and honeysuckle. It’s another Chardonnay that can be enjoyed today or cellared for a decade."
