Hand-picked from the 52 Stones Vineyard in the Ferguson Valley and the 30yo Smithbrook Vineyard in Pemberton, chilled, whole-bunch pressed directly to French barriques (80% new) for wild fermentation and 8 months on lees. The very liberal use of new oak and barrel fermentation has succeeded in making a chardonnay that remains balanced and not particularly heavy, although in chardonnay terms is certainly full-bodied. My inclination would be to drink this by the end of (18% new), although I understand why Millbrook says now or 5-10 years

Pungent buttery nose with biscuity complexity and honeyed notes. A nutty oak driven palate that opens up to reveal nice fruit. High level of acidity on the finis.

4 and 1/2 stars
