Settlement Poplars Vineyard Chardonnay (91 VM)

The 2019 Chardonnay Poplars Vineyard is intense, racy and vigorous. This nutty little number offers a medley of hazelnuts and cashews alongside a zesty, flinty character. The Mendoza clone gives a ripe yet firm expression that powers home on the clean finish, with flavors of citrus and nectarine fruit lingering.” – Rebecca Gibb MW
