With the new juice came sexy new barrels which we’ve fallen for. When done right, the best Chardonnay in the world (looking at you, Pernot) carries wood beautifully, and it does here. The typical purity and sense of place is enhanced by another layer of intrigue as the wood in both the nose and mouth plays an equally humble and prominent role in this wine.
Not to be outdone, the raging acid and saline and classic citrus elements of Four Winds stand their ground making sure we remember its ALWAYS terroir first. White peach, orange, clove and pear all make an appearance, as does precision and balance.
