Light yellow. High-pitched aromas of lemon curd, green apple and honeysuckle, with sneaky iodine and spice nuances that gain power with air. Dusty, precise and palate-staining, offering dense citrus and orchard fruit flavors with zero fat. Notes of ginger and agave appear on the finish, which is linear and very persistent. I really like this wine's focus.

The 2009 Chardonnay Estate is a vivid, multi-dimensional wine that captures the essence of the Peay style. Lemon, pear, butter, pastry and spices are nicely supported by underlying veins of minerality that give the wine its freshness and verve. The textural finesse of the finish alone is striking.
