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. PAUL GREGUTT

It’s got an old-vine composure in its scents of lemon curd and almond butter. The flavors are warm and balanced, citrusy, with an oceanic freshness framed by judicious oak. Taut and on point for grilled chicken.

Aromas of fresh pears and sliced green apples here with fresh-pastry notes, too. This is a bold chardonnay with ripe-melon and lemon flavors and a neatly resolved, vibrant fruit core. Long and balanced. Drink now.

Precise and polished, with keenly structured lemon, crisp apple and savory spice flavors that glide along the finish. Drink now. 299 cases made. — TF
