VARNER Chardonnay, Spring Ridge Vineyard 'Amphitheater Block' 2014

The 2014 'Amphitheater Block' Chardonnay is an absolutely remarkable showing from Varner. This outstanding Chardonnay impresses with alluring aromas of bosc pear, lemon, honeysuckle, jasmine and a smoky mineral character which all instantly burst from the glass. On the palate this is beautifully textured while exhibiting fantastic overall purity, focus and balance from start to finish. Today, the 'Amphitheater Block' is utterly captivating and readily accessible, with the potential to age gracefully for years to come. (Best 2016-2026) - June, 2016 (JD)
