2018 Baileyana

2018 Baileyana "Firepeak" Chardonnay

A bright but complex Chardonnay, this wine has upfront favors of crisp pear, lemon zest, pineapple, and hints of vanilla. Aromas of citrus and honeydew melon highlight the chalky minerality that runs throughout. This wine is smooth and balanced with refined acid structure, and a nice creamy finish.

90 Points, Wine Enthusiast: “Dried lemon peel and sandalwood lead into earthier tones of damp forest logs and struck match on the nose of this bottling. ere’s a tight, linear texture to the palate, where ashy and chalky flavors meet with light oak and seared pineapple.” —Matt Kettmann, October 2020

90 Points, Vinous: "Bright straw. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit and floral qualities on the nose, along with hints of tarragon and honey. Silky and open-knit, offering pliant orange, pear and melon flavors that show good depth and no rough edges. Delivers very good tenacity and spicy lift on the finish, which echoes the tarragon and honey notes." —Josh Raynolds, January 2021
