2021 Westwood Chardonnay, Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
This head-turning chardonnay is a notable example of what happens when Philippe and Maayan’s remarkable interpretation of Old-World technique combines with stunning New World (Petaluma Gap) fruit. With its legacy of eye-popping scores from the wine-reviewing domain, it is no surprise that this limited-production chardonnay has become one of the most popular wines we produce. Rich acidity, bright, focused aromas of fuji apple and Asian pear, and crushed limestone. The 2021 shows spectacular minerality and a viscous,mouth-filling textural quality.
