Westerly 2014 Bentrock Vineyard Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills)

Very fresh on the nose but with an underlying savory character, this bottling from a vineyard on the extreme western edge of the appellation shows exotic aromas of lime skin, chopped lemongrass and salted lemon juice. The palate is taut with crispness and very salty, showing apple flesh, pear skin and lime-rind flavors. It's altogether well centered, cohesive and attention-grabbing. Matt Kettmann
