The 2019 DuMOL Chardonnay Isobel Charles Heintz Vineyard is a wine that exudes elegance and complexity from the moment it graces the glass with its radiant golden color. On the nose, it reveals a captivating blend of bold, savory botanical notes intertwining harmoniously with the vineyard's signature aromas of honeyed lemon and delicate white flowers. The palate is a delightful journey of flavors, offering a rich and luscious experience with notes of lemon curd, chamomile, and waxy apple, beautifully complemented by a refreshing spearmint lift. This Chardonnay showcases the coastal energy that keeps its intense oily texture in perfect harmony. The vineyard's old vines contribute to a deep, opulent core of fruit, which finds its equilibrium with every drop of tangy mineral acidity, ensuring a wonderfully balanced wine. As the tasting experience culminates, notes of sage and slate linger gracefully on the finish, leaving a lasting impression of this extraordinary wine's finesse and character.
Antonio Galloni - 94 Points
"The 2019 Chardonnay Isobel Charles Heintz Vineyard is forward and racy, which makes it a good choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Tropical fruit and soft, oily contours - classic Heintz signatures - give the 2019 so much sheer appeal. Jasmine, passionfruit, mint and tangerine oil linger."
