Pence 2015 Rosa Estate Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills)

Editors' Choice

One of the better Chardonnays tasted in recent years from the Central Coast, this bottling by proprietor Blair Pence is both brisk and warm on the nose, with lemon balm, crushed limestone and yuzu cutting through white peach and butter. The tactile chalkiness on the sip is remarkable, carrying flavors of lime pith, Asian pear, sea salt, shaved lemongrass and lime leaf. Matt Kettmann
