The 2018 La Belle Promenade Vineyard Chardonnay jumps out of the glass with lean, citrus and saline influenced character.  The palate is replete with ripe orchard and citrus grove fruits, spice and racy acidity.  This medium bodied, lean expression of chardonnay is delightful today and will benefit from short term cellaring.
