The 2015 Hardscrabble Chardonnay from Linden is made from vines averaging 25 year old. The wines was on lees in French oak for 10 months with little battonage, preserving a flavor of freshness.
This is dense and complex with vibrant acidity. The aromatics are of apple, almond and nutmeg.
Excellent with roasted chicken and soft cheeses.
