Sixto, Uncovered, Chardonnay 2018 (Washington)
Producer Notes: The color reminds one of Meursault. Golden and hazelnut-hued. The wine comes fully formed from the glass with jackfruit, oyster shell, apricot stone, crushed rock and flavor galore. Wax, spring flowers, vanilla pod, ancient vinyl. So giving. The next words should be THANK YOU...May I have another?
James Suckling, 93 Points: This is always a pretty chardonnay with transparent cooked-apple, lemon-rind and ripe-pineapple character. It’s full-bodied, layered and beautiful.
Wine Spectator, 92 Points: Floral star fruit and apricot aromas open to lush yet crisp pineapple flavors that expand and flesh out on the finish.
Jeb Dunnuck, 91 Points: Showing beautifully, the 2018 Chardonnay Uncovered is a blend of sites yet sees the same care and upbringing as the single vineyards. Honeyed lemons, toasted bread, caramelized orchard fruits, and a touch of chalky minerality all make an appearance, and it's medium-bodied, with a balanced, elegant texture, ample richness, and a clean finish.
