94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

Winery note
"Brilliant lemon-gold, Elston Chardonnay ’20 has the immediate aroma of lime blossom, fresh golden nectarine, creamy nougat and delicate meadow flowers. Freshness and ripe acidity shine in a palate laden with peach, citrus, pineapple, and oyster shell highlights. With texture, depth and stunning brightness of fruit, Elston Chardonnay ’20 has a clarity and focus that radiates right through its long and luminous finish. Each parcel was gently whole-cluster pressed, cold settled and racked to new and
seasoned French oak barrels for fermentation. The resulting wines remained in contact with their yeast lees, with a number going through malolactic fermentation. The finest lots were selected for further maturation, spending a total of 10 months in barrel."
