Auntsfield Single Vineyard Chardonnay

Auntsfield’s ancient soils of Marlborough’s southern valleys leave their stamp of consummately textured, stony mouthfeel that lingers long on the finish. Excellent acid drive and a determined persistence promise a strong future in the cellar. Right now it blossoms with lemon zest, white peach flesh and grapefruit perfume; its fruit presence refined and focused, understated and elegant, yet lacking nothing in concentration. $27 at Nicks.
