Based on the number of 84s we've assigned to Aresti's Chardonnays over the years, that seems to be where this winery has settled. This vintage is more of the same: it's light, lemony and salinic, with flavors of green melon, grapefruit and lettuce. A little dilute on the finish, but decent as a whole.
