2013 Wayfarer Chardonnay....$75.99
The color of straw with glints of green, our 2013 Wayfarer Vineyard Chardonnay captivates with intense, seductive aromatics of honeysuckle, orange blossom and lemon zest, lingering with hints of brioche and flint. Its rich mouthfeel envelops the palate, underscored by a laser-focused acidity. Notes of white peach, apricot, toasted almond and crème fraîche linger through the extended finish. This wine carries an amazing minerality, a sense of dry flintiness, that is unique to our site. A stunning wine to enjoy in its youth with an hour of decanting, it will age beautifully for another 10–15 years.
This rich and harmonious cuvee of 12 Pinot Noir clones beautifully showcases Wayfarer’s vibrant spectrum of single-vineyard, estate-grown fruit. The wine is a dazzling deep ruby color that leads with heady aromas of wild blackcurrant and freshly picked strawberry. It evolves with notes of licorice and toasted oak, finishing with an intriguing lilt of forest floor, leather, rose petal and raspberry. The bright, juicy entry evokes flavors of cranberry and cherry, harmonized with a grip of fine tannins and earthy tones of cedar and tar. The long finish surprises with its fresh minerality and intense aromatics of violet and Tahitian vanilla. Showy now with two hours of decanting at cellar temperature, watch this wine evolve beautifully with cellaring up to 15 years.
