Youthful crème brûlée and allspice tones to reveal apricot, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas...

 

Expressive aromatics of fresh mango, honeyed lemon peel and toasted brioche encompass the senses. Stunningly balanced with a refined, smooth palate, lively acidity, and a weightless texture on the finish.

Erin Brooks writes: The 2021 Chardonnay One Sixteen, matured for 14 months in 34% new French oak, takes some time to shake off its youthful crème brûlée and allspice tones to reveal apricot, beeswax and honeysuckle aromas. The medium-bodied palate offers powerful fruit and oak spice and satisfying freshness to lift the finish.  - Robert Parker Wine Advocate 91

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: A youthful yellow with silver hue, the 2021 Chardonnay One-Sixteen is lifted with aromas of fresh pineapple, a touch of petrol, and wet stone. Medium to full-bodied, it is forward with notes of ripe apple fruit up front that tapers to a more citrus-driven finish, with lemon pith and a chalky texture. Drink 2023-2028.
