J. Lohr Arroyo Vista Vineyard Chardonnay 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Arroyo Seco|
Clean and focused on the nose, this bottling begins with tightly wound aromas of chalk and lemon rind, with delicate citrus blossom, apricot and pulverized sea-shell touches also arising. The palate is a bit more generous, with apricot glaze and white-blossom flavors, but that enveloping sea-shell component clings into the finish.
The 2019 Chardonnay Arroyo Vista is also legit, offering clean white peach and subtle tropical fruits as well as a medium-bodied, nicely balanced, lively style on the palate.
