glass The palate is beautifully balanced with flavors of ripe melon and lemongrass,
bright acidity and great length

As in previous vintages, this your wine comes ready to drink
with exceptional texture and mouthfeel. Apple butter, toast, roasted nuts, wet
stone and a hint of popcorn are threaded together, in a lovely lively bottle
with excellent length Drink now and over the next half decade. Editors’ Choice.

Pale yellow. Ripe citrus and orchard fruits, honey, toasted
nuts and a hint of smokiness on the pungent, deeply perfumed nose. Plush pear nectar,
candied peach and tangerine flavors take on a suave floral nuance as the wine
opens up. In a weighty but surprisingly lively style, showing excellent
finishing cling and lingering honeysuckle and brioche flourishes.

The 2018 Chardonnay Shea Vineyard is scented of yellow apple
and pear with notes of lemon pith, earth and toast. Medium-bodied, it offers
tree fruit and citrus flavors in the mouth framed by honey nut and clotted
cream nuances, finishing long with great freshness.
