2017 Chardonnay, El Jabali
Our 2017 Jabali Chardonnay is a study in pure concentration. Brilliant straw with green highlights suggest a youthfulness surprising in a wine aged on lees for so long. On the nose, this wine is disarming in its aromas of wet stone, gravel, and citrus. Jasmine notes hint at freshness and vibrancy. On the palate, this Chardonnay is tightly wound and cerebral, with sizzling acid and a strong mineral streak. Flavors of lemon curd and clementine echo on the long, fresh finish. Drink now with fish or cellar for as much as 5-7 years.
