The 2016 Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard is lovely, exhibiting youthful but expressive notes of apple, white peach and a touch of green herbs, subtly framed by a judicious application of new oak. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, with bright acids that lend the wine focus and delineation, with good concentration and a chalky, mouthwatering finish. The additional tension and intensity that this possesses over the Alesia Anderson Valley bottling—also derived from Bearwallow Vineyard—reflects how selective, both at the press and in the cellar, the Rhys team is in determining what makes the cut. Follow it for the coming decade or more.
