2018 Little Bit Chardonnay
A barrel selection from our Little Bit Vineyard, the 2018 Little Bit jumps out of your glass with aromatic displays of white pepper, lemon custard and honey followed by mouth-filling layers of cream caramel, finishing with structure and integrated acidity.
97+ points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Chardonnay Little Bit was aged for 23 months in French oak barrels, 80% New. It comes charging out of the gate with bold scents of honey-drizzled peaches, poached pears and guava plus nuances of beeswax, struck flint and chalk dust with a touch of lemon zest. Full-bodied and concentrated, it has a creamy texture and fantastic tension, finishing on a lingering ginger note."
93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous - "The 2018 Chardonnay Little Bit brings together the richness of this site with a sense of airiness that gives the wine lift. Broad and yet understated, with tons of power in support, the 2018 is super-expressive today. There is real inner, density and creaminess here. Light tropical accents linger on the close."
93 points, Wine Spectator - "This is a barrel selection exclusively from the Little Bit Vineyard. It is a dramatic wine full of aromas of lemon custard, peaches and almonds. It is full, rich and bold while remaining exuberant persisting with its long elegant finish."
