Moss Wood 2017 Chardonnay – Brian Freedman, Food & Wine

Rating: Stars

“There is an entire universe in the nose here, which dances with baba au rhum, grilled pineapple, gunflint minerality, lemon clotted cream, white peach, and cobbler shell. It’s every bit as impressive when you take the first sip, with a distinctly savory edge to the otherwise broad flavors of charred vanilla pod, nectarine, lemon marmalade, and cantaloupe, all of it framed with fascinating spice notes (white cardamom and baking spice, primarily) and the rind in a jar of orange marmalade. The finish is long and generous, flecked with flowers and almonds, and remains impeccably balanced and concentrated throughout. Absolutely stunning.”
