    Lime pith, lemon oil weave through this youthful chardonnay. I refer to youth by way of its name, the age of the vines, and the aim to be ready to drink and enjoy easily now. This was native ferment and aged in both stainless and neutral barrels. The 2017 vintage was compressed and tricky, with a late start, scorching summer, and early harvest, all the while with much of the valley blanketed in wildfire smoke for periods of time. This wine mirrors the disjointed nature of the year at this point. Lemon oil, yellow apple, toasted oats and hints of green poke up through the plump palate, one still reflecting a dusting of stony minerality, though to a somewhat stunted finish. I have the feeling this will settle some with time in bottle, and benefit from a chilling and pairing with scallops or spot prawns. Score - 89. (Treve Ring, gismondionwine.com, July 13, 2018)
