95

Brilliant straw-gold. A highly complex, mineral-driven bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, iodine, buttered toast and white flowers. Shows superb depth and fine delineation, offering vibrant orange, Anjou pear, sweet butter and anise flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in style, displaying superb focus and minerally thrust on an impressively long finish that features lingering floral and orange pith flourishes.

93 Wine Enthusiast

Elton's quarter-century-old vines bring a complex mix of aromatics—yeast, flowers, herbs and even chicken stock. The wild yeast ferment adds texture and length to a high acid wine with Meyer lemon and ripe grapefruit. It's a multilayered, mineral-driven, long-lived style, with just a touch of 15% new French oak. Drink now–2028.

Product Description:

Golden straw in color with a shiny chartreuse edge, the aromas open with appealing mix of ripe white peaches, and wet rock minerality laced with hints of lemon zest, flint and soft anise. Delicate on the palate with a light creamy core, layers of pears, white peaches and freshly baked biscotti flavors compete on the flinty and mineral finish. A complete and long-lasting wine, fresh and multi-layered, this is a classic example that every chardonnay lover will truly enjoy.
