Whitcraft 2016 Pence Ranch Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills)

Very chalky on the nose in a Chablis-like style, this bottling, which is made in a warehouse just blocks from the beach in Santa Barbara, shows aromas of lemon blossom and Gravenstein apple. It's extremely tightly wound on the sip, with a savory salt character as well as lemon balm flavors. It's texturally intriguing and compelling. Matt Kettmann
