The Clos Juliet Chardonnay comes from a 1-acre plot on some of the best terroir in the Santa Rita Hills. This is a classic expression of Chardonnay, which displays striking aromas of lemon confit, ripe pear, pulverized stones, lime zest, flint and sea spray nuances that all come together beautifully. The palate offers a focused and intense character, complemented by cool-toned orchard fruits, crushed rocks and citrus notes with secondary layers of lemon custard and a notable stony character. It possesses fantastic energy and precision through the impressively long finish. Even in its youth, Clos Juliet is utterly fascinating, and is amongst one of the most compelling Chardonnays being made in all of California.
