Tolosa – 1772 Chardonnay 2016 – Edna Ranch, Edna Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers power, elegance as well as a slight concentration. It reveals notes of quince, kumquat and small notes of litchi, quenette associated with slight hints of flowers as well as discreet hints of almond and an imperceptible toasted touch. The palate is mineral, beautifully balanced, racy, round, unctuous and offers a beautiful freshness, a beautiful definition, a beautiful finesse of the grain, juiciness, an acidulous frame, a beautiful suavity / fat as well as a good matter and a beautiful texture. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed nectarine, quince and small notes of quenette associated with small touches of citrus, beeswax as well as slight hints of crushed kumquat and discreet hints of apricot (in the background). Good length.
