2020 "Ma Jolie" Chardonnay 1.5L
Peake Ranch Vineyard, JD 96 / LPB 95+ Points
"The 2020 Chardonnay Ma Jolie Peake Ranch Vineyard is another Sta. Rita Hills release, and it spent 16 months in 63% new barrels. Lemon curd, white flowers, chalky minerality, charcoal, and some classy oak all define this beauty’s bouquet, and it's medium to full-bodied, has a balanced, seamless mouthfeel, good acidity, and a great, great finish. It's another spectacular effort from Paul Lato that readers will love. Drink bottles over the coming 4-6 years."
