Garagiste Merricks Chardonnay 2021Regular price $47.00
Aromas of peaches and oranges, white nectarines are circling in the background.
The palate starts with bright acid but is balanced by ripe yellow nectarines and light hints of orange pith. The finish is long and closes with grapefruit.
Completely balanced and will improve with time.
"Merricks’ cooler tendencies are evident in this 2021 release. It’s teeming with aromas of citrus and crushed rocks with a mouth-watering, sappy herbal twist. There’s bright fruit coiled around a well-crafted core, providing a well-balanced wine with excellent intensity, juicy texture, flickering acidity and just enough phenolic grip, then a whisper of brine at the end. Young, but full of packed with potential."
