Bannister 1999 Porter-Bass Chardonnay (Russian River Valley)

This is a tight, taut Chard, grown very close to the Pacific Ocean. Acidity is the chief palate impression, high and tart, and the flavors veer toward minerals, stone, herbs and citrus fruits. But this austerity is rich, complex and interesting. Seems likely to develop, but these coastal Chards are still experiments.
