The 2018 'Cuvée Torchiana' Chardonnay is sourced from Hyde Selection Wente Clone from the Beresini Vineyard, which is located in the very south section of Carneros Napa, and is heavily influenced by fog.The wine itself opens to striking aromatics of fresh sliced pears, tangerine zest, honey blossoms, oyster shell and sea breeze nuances which all take shape and emerge beautifully from the glass. On the palate this possesses a fabulous richly textured mouthfeel, which is framed by gorgeous acidity that provides wonderful freshness and verve all the way through the mouthwatering finish, where pineapple and vanilla crème flavors leave a lasting impression. This Chardonnay is utterly fascinating today, yet should continue to drink exceptionally well for quite some time. An absolutely beautiful Chardonnay from Tor and his winemaking team.
