Kosta Browne One Sixteen Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2013

$99.99

Limited new Chardonnay release from Kosta Browne.From the makers of much sought-after Pinot Noir, this Chardonnay was made from grapes sourced from the same cool growing region, within several miles of the winery's production facility. "One Sixteen" is named for Highway 116, which runs through the Green Valley of the Russian River Valley appellation, where vines grow in sandy, Goldridge soil.  91 Points Stephen Tanzer:  "Green-tinged gold. A complex bouquet evokes lime, lemongrass and white flowers, with a smoky, leesy overtone. Spicy, firm and precise, offering lively citrus zest flavors and a deeper touch of honeydew. Packs a punch but comes off lithe and nervy, with an exotic coconut quality and a lingering floral note on the very long finish."

Brilliant. Bright. I was awestruck how much I enjoyed it. Great acid and barrel integration. Full of white fruits, nuts, brine and hot cinnamon. Great balance

Pale golden color with appealing apple, melon, mandarin orange, key lime zest, and a bit of orange blossom aromas. On the palate, it's rich, round, and shows generous acidity with melon, mandarin orange, key lime zest, vanilla and a bit of brown spice flavors. Long finish.2013 vintage.

Beautiful wine. Massive melted butter diacetyl aromas. Very lactic on the palate. Would have like a bit more acidity/burgundy to balance. I always love hard to find whites from red houses. This is a fun wine.
