TOR Chardonnay, Beresini Vineyard 'Torchiana' 2017

The 2017 Torchiana Chardonnay is a magnificent showing in this vintage. Sourced from the 4-acre Beresini Vineyard in Carneros, which was once a pear orchard, before being replanted by Steve Beresin to Heritage Wente Chardonnay Clone. The wine itself is simply gorgeous, as it begins with seductive aromas of lemon oil, clementine, buttered almond, white flowers and wet stones all coming together beautifully. This is a full-bodied Chardonnay, which also demonstrates outstanding precision as it delivers layers of citrus and tropical fruits along with hints of stone fruits through the finish. Overall, this is an utterly fascinating Chardonnay which is absolutely delicious now, however should ultimately be cellared for a few years before approaching.
