Wayfarer Vineyard Sonoma Chardonnay 2014
Wine EnthusiastThis is yet another stunning wine from this site, guided by the capable hands of Winemaker and Viticulturalist Bibiana González Rave, who has coaxed from it beguiling layers of complex concentration and sublime notions of tang and salt. The only white from a sea of Pinot Noir grown here, it speaks to what the extreme Sonoma Coast can bring to the variety-a celebration of lemon zest, crisp apple and brioche delicately wrapped in minerality.

Wine AdvocateWayfarer's 2014 Chardonnay Wayfarer Vineyard shows loads of tangerine oil, crushed rock, great acidity and other citrus blossoms in the aromatics and flavors. It is medium to full-bodied, dry and pure. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
