2018 Bruliam Wines Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard

From a great site on the Sonoma Coast, the 2018 Chardonnay Heintz Vineyard spent 10 months in 30% new French oak. Its medium gold color is followed by a rich, layered Chardonnay that has lots of golden fruits, caramelized citrus, brioche, and toasty notes to go with a vibrant, racy, yet textured style on the palate.
