The 2015 Biddle Ranch Vineyard Edna Valley Chardonnay hits 13.8% abv and sells for $32. Only 460 cases were produced.
This Edna Valley Chardonnay shows golden in the glass. It has a lovely nose featuring apples and oak, plenty of the former and just enough of the latter. An underlying licorice note adds an interesting twist. On the palate there's yellow apple, peach and a lemon-lime note, with a hint of the oak spice. The acidity is brisk, while the finish is a long-lasting sense of minerals and citrus.
