In the 2016 Vintage, winemaker James Sparks blended the Golden Slope with fruit from Clos Pepe (23%), Ritas Crown (23%), Bentrock (19%), La Rinconada (13%), Kessler-Haak (13%) and Zotovich (9%). The resulr is a ripe and delicious Chardonnay that opens with aromas of fresh sliced apple, tangerine, fresh herb, honey, and flower blossoms. It has beautiful balance, with fresh, pure fruit, followed by a blast of acidity on the finish. I love the way this is drinking today, and also look forward to watch this beauty evolve.
