Balletto Teresa's Unoaked Chardonnay 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
The 2018 Teresa's continues to define California's Unoaked Chardonnay category. Crisp and vibrant, yet amazingly luscious; it showcases how Chardonnay does not need flashy oak or malolactic fermentation to be distinct and delicious. It's focused with intensely bright and lifted tropical aromas that are offset with slightly savory tones. Then comes the texture, balance and persistence. It's mouthwatering with refreshing acidity that contrasts its surprisingly robust and weighted mid-palate. Slight tannins add subtle tension and pull the wine into a persistent, serious finish. It's awesome.
Lively, with flinty notes to the baked apple and dried pear flavors. The spicy finish features savory hints. Drink now.
