Complexity and longevity are the name of the game here. This shows a restrained nose of melon, smoke, nuts and a little buttery oak. The palate is really where it’s at, weaving those same flavors seamlessly together. With a chalky texture and a good lick of acidity, everything is in balance here, setting this wine up for plenty of years of life. Drink now–2025

Despite being fermented in 100% new French oak, the 2016 Finisterre Chardonnay is only lightly toasty, with scents of pineapple and tangerine complemented by hints of toasted cereal grains and subtle vanilla shadings. This is a medium-bodied, silky-textured Chardonnay with so much elegance and finesse it runs the risk of being too fine. Flavor isn’t a bad thing!
