2015 The Limit Chardonnay - Babcock Winery & Vineyards
Pure visceral energy without anything overbearing. Ripe lemon, peach pit, clean salinity, and subtle influence of malolactic fermentation and oak. Did we mention energy? Woah. This 2015 Babcock "The Limit" Chardonnay is a wine with something to say, and boy does it say it.
With fruit sourced from the Radian vineyard located on the far western edge of the Santa Rita Hills AVA, winemaker Bryan Babcock has done something special with this Chardonnay. Coming from one of the coolest climates in California, this wine is distinctly Cali yet somehow possesses old world verve. Delicious.
