Lutum Gap's Crown Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

$44.99

The 2014 Chardonnay Gap's Crown Vineyard is all class. Silky, layered and wonderfully nuanced, the Gap's Crown oozes personality. Candied lemon peel, jasmine, sage and white pepper are some of the many signatures that develop in the glass. The 2014 is understand and soft-spoken, but there is no shortage of nuance. This is a stunning Chardonnay from Gavin Chanin. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

From one of our newest california AVA's, Gap's Crown. This wine's a flirt: slab of malo, cantaloupe/papaya/pumpkin, and browning apple. Bottle says it's grown on clay soils and it's pretty upfront with that. Some rubber or glue here too on the nose and texture. Like zero citrus notes.. veeeeery smooth and subtle acid I'd give it a 5/10 it's like a slow wave. A little extra floral for Chardonnay and I think the nose exceeds the palette. Honestly let this open up because 30 minutes later I'm enjoying it levels more. Finally this wine was picked because I was looking through my stash for a wine that pairs with lord of the rings lol. Good wine for sure. 14.4%

Peaches, melons and pineapple leap from the glass. Solid mouthfeel because of the excellent acidity however the excellent raw material that lurks is pushed back by the oak.
