The Hilt The Old Guard Chardonnay 2014

$54.95

...Orchard fruit and sweet floral notes are front and center, but it is the wine's crystalline purity and overall finesse that stand out most. In 2014, the Old Guard is pure class and pedigree. Vineyard sites are Sanford & Benedict, Solomon Hills and Radian. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Zippy and steely. Nice integration of oak. Acid runs a little high for my taste. Promising future ahead of it. Spin off of Jonata.

White peach, lemon, racey, minerals and high acid. As it warms the vanilla oak is more present. Well composed but not my go to style.

Slightly less zippy than the Vanguard, but still has that acidic core. Drank it over 3 days and it was still crisp and lively on day 3. Would benefit from some age.
