Peay Chardonnay Estate 2018
VM95: Peay’s 2018 Chardonnay Estate is a superb wine that shows just how pedigreed Sonoma Coast Chardonnay can be. What I like most about the 2018 is its translucent personality and weightless sense of elegance. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint, white pepper and dried flowers are all finely-knit, but it is the wine’s textural feel that really elevates it into the realm of the sublime. A touch of reduction adds lingers on the finish nicely, without being obtrusive.
