Chapel Hill 'The Chosen' Gorge Block Chardonnay 2011

Aromatic allure, delicate grapefruit with pithy lemon citrus invite you in.  Go back and there's more, it's a snippet of a conversation at first you don't understand, then you process it and the picture is a little clearer.

A nice segue onto the palate where detail presents itself: battonage and barrel work self-evident with a fuller mouthfeel.  Toasty, spicy oak toward the mid/ back palate, there's acid - noticeable, not prominent.  It's less about line and length, more detail and depth. Pretty impressive.  91 - Very Good
