Brewer-Clifton 2012 Hapgood Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills)

Cellar Selection

Initial wafts of cannabis-like herbs quickly emerge into lime pith, limestone, struck match and oyster shells, with white flowers and yeastiness showing as well. There's a vivid tension between tart apple flesh and citrus pith on the palate, with lemon curd and pineapple elements arriving over time. Sit on this until 2017 so the acid can mellow, then drink through 2027. Matt Kettmann
