Lavinea 'Elton Vineyard' Chardonnay 2015 Review

This is unquestionably an oaky style of Chardonnay, but give it a few years for that toasted barrel and sweet vanilla to integrate more fully, and it will be a magnificent wine. Burgundian in style, the palate has searing lemon and orange juice underneath cutting through all that richness. It’s hedonistically pleasing right now, but over time, it will become much more complex.
