Benevolent Neglect || California || Chardonnay
Sourced from Massa Estate in Carmel Valley. This organic vineyard is a great example of what the Santa Lucia Highlands can offer.
Instantly recognisable as a Californian Chardonnay, yet it possesses a wonderful lightness of being that’s difficult to express without a glass in your hand. Elegance, purity of fruit with a gentle touch of oak to add depth, it’s hard to go wrong with this one!
The winemakers Ben Brenner and Matt Nagy say Chardonnay is often described as crisp or heavy oak, “why choose when you can have balance?”
Very limited supply.
