VIDA BELLA VINEYARD CHARDONNAY

2016


“The 2016 Chardonnay Vida Bella comes from a site in the Santa Cruz Mountains and spent 15 months in neutral oak. Possessing plenty of reductive characteristics in its lemon curd, spice, pineapple cream, white flowers, and flinty minerality, this beauty is medium-bodied, concentrated, and vibrant on the palate. It reminds me of a Chevalier-Montrachet and needs 4-5 years of bottle age.”
96 points- Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2016 Chardonnay Vida Bella is pretty, open-knit and super-inviting. Apricot, chamomile, lightly honeyed notes and yellow flowers are all pushed forward. A hint of reduction adds nuance without being overpowering, the 2016 is generous and resonant, both qualities that make it a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years.”
