Paul Hobbs Winery, 2015 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Edward James

"Sea salt, buttercups, dill, thyme, dried apricots, yellow apples and pear tart. The palate's medium- to full-bodied with lots of apple fruit, runing through fine yet structured layers of phenolic tension. Electric acidity and a dried-lemon finish. So polished and refined yet intense. Drink now or hold."

"The 2015 Chardonnay Edward James Estate shows the same tropical profile it did from barrel, but over the last year the wine either seems to have become more gracious, airy and lifted in style, all of which works beautifully to play off some of the more overt elements, or the final barrel selection was more stringent than originally conceived. Exotic floral notes and white orchard fruit complement some of the richer overtones that are at the heart of the wine's personality."
