What a distinctive and lovely California Chardonnay! Beautiful ripe peach, star fruit and pink rose notes waft from this smooth and flavorful Central Coast Chardonnay. Flavors of tropical fruits, honey crisp apple, nectarine, honeydew melon and hints of sweet oak accent the soft, velvety texture and continue through a delicious, lingering round, bright finish.
Josh Jensen was one of the first and is still one of the few in California to make Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in a style that is as close to the French style as possible. No oaky, buttery, tropical fruit-dominating notes here! This is about refinement and minerality, not power. The 2013 made the Wine Spectator top 100 list last year with the same rating as this new vintage: 90 “A delicate style that relies on subtlety and finesse, capturing the ripe essence of white peach, mandarin orange, pear, and citrus flavors. Long and elegant, ending clean and refreshing. Drink now.”
