Ad Hoc Hen & Chicken Pemberton Chardonnay

Great value WA chardonnay of character and definition, contrasting enticing struck flint and gunpowder reductive character with tightly-honed grapefruit and lemon, opening into white peach fruit. Cashew nut French oak is subtle and supportive, enhancing fruit texture and definition. $18 at Corkscrew Cellars and Dan’s.
