17 Offshoot Chardonnay
The 2017 Offshoot Chardonnay shows uplifted nose characters of brioche and hazelnut with concentrated apricot and rock melon that linger on and on. Weighty stone fruit and citrus fruits fill the front palate and support the structured style. The quality fruit and oak are integrated beautifully. The wine can be enjoyed now but will also develop and evolve over the next 5 years.
