Sourced from the same producer as N.157 and N.158, OG N.156 2019 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is a gorgeous, textbook example of the varietal in this region. The sensibility is decidedly Burgundian with integrated oak that lifts the fruit and beautiful mid-palate tension and verve. Selling for just around $100/bottle out of the tasting room, its a stellar deal at $24/bottle. Only 100 cases available.
Features an energetic yet succulent bouquet of honeysuckle blossom, white flower and spicy, poached pear lifted by lemon oil/ candy and ginger notes. Beautifully layered on the pale with lip-smacking acidity and nervy tension driving through a diamond-dusted mineral supernova. Incredible purity and persistence on the finish. Shazam!
