2017 Maritana Vineyards ‘La Rivière’ Chardonnay
James Suckling 95: This is very subtle and complete with cooked lemons and apples and a complement of straw and gunpowder. Full-bodied, deep and layered with an ever attractive finish of fruit and minerals. Why wait? Drink now.
Wine Enthusiast 93: From three separate sites, Winemaker Donald Patz has crafted a wine with an effusive nose of caramel, oak, pear and honey. The full-bodied palate is balanced by firm tannins and heightened acidity. Overall, it’s fresh and fleshy in equal measure.
