This elegant wine with lovely texture and many different layers, speaks to the potential of the Jacob Hart site for Chardonnay. When first opened and poured into the glass aromas of lemon curd, quince, orange, lime & cherry blossom, tangerine and nectarine emerge. As the wine opens aromas of yellow plums, sea shells, smoke, toasted hazelnuts and English ivy give greater complexity to the whole. In the mouth, the attack is pure, full and rich, but balanced with bright acidity and an intense structure that lends precision and focus to the wine. The mid-palate is beautifully balanced with flavors of citrus zest, river stones, elderflower, lemon grass and some herbal and honeyed notes. Walking a tightrope between ripeness, structure and freshness, the wine showcases the intensity and depth of the 2014 vintage. As the wine moves to the finish, it becomes almost weightless and transparent while lasting forever on the palate with a pronounced minerality. Complex and complete, well-structured and intense, the 2014 REX HILL Jacob Hart Chardonnay has the power and balance to age for many years. Enjoy and savor!
