The 2018 Barrel fermented Chardonnay has continued to evolve and mature in the cellar. To the RayLen family, it is approaching prime.  In another 6-12 months this wine will crest it’s peak, but only if you can wait that long. 

The 2018 Barrel Chardonnay is drinking now like a reserve.  The rich golden color invites aromas of tropical papaya and pineapple laced with slight oak and vanillin undertones.  The complete Malo-Lactic fermentation consumes the sharp malic acid (the acid in Green Apples, too) yielding a creamy butter texture.  We also experienced during the tasting a tad of orange fruit in the mid pallet that finishes with a nice bright smooth acidity.
