Bachelder 2019 Chardonnay, Bai Xu

Where did this Bai Xu vineyard come from? It's like Thomas B was driving along, spied the vineyard and then stopped, parked, wander up to the door and asked a bunch of questions ... One of them was the draw dropping "how old are these?" Now it says it right there on the label, 1981. These old vines have the sense to bring us notes of pineapple, pear and apricots; there's a hint of vanilla here as well. The oaky notes manage to weave its way between the fruits, but never seems to get in the way.  Price: $44.95 - Rating: ****+
