Ponzi Vineyards Aurora Chardonnay 2017 (93 VM)

“Limpid yellow. Pungent aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, honeysuckle, vanilla and candied ginger, with subtle lees and smoky mineral qualities in the background. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering fresh tangerine, Anjou pear and chamomile flavors braced by a core of tangy acidity. The silky, penetrating and persistent finish features lively citrus fruit character and lingering florality. 45% new oak.”
