90pointsJaffurs 2015 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills)

The longtime Rhône variety-focused winery is expanding into Burgundian varieties, and this first Chardonnay is a solid start. Aromas of lime, white melon, wet stone and a touch of guava lean toward a richer expression. The palate is rounded with clotted cream, salt and lemon zest flavors, balancing between the buttery Californian and tenser Old World styles. Matt Kettmann
