Description 

Sixto Uncovered Chardonnay
A blend from Frenchman Hills, Moxee and Roza Hills Vineyards, the Chardonnay Uncovered (this was reviewed last year as the straight Chardonnay) was brought up all in neutral French oak and spent 15 months on lees prior to bottling. It's a gorgeous Chardonnay that offers lots of apple, white flowers and toasty notes to go with a ripe, rounded, sexy style on the palate. One of the more layered and ripe efforts here, it still stays fresh and lively, with plenty of zip and cut on the finish. Focusing on old-vine Chardonnay and higher-elevation, cool-climate sites, Sixto is made by the team at Charles Smith, with Brennon Leighton taking the lead role. They're easily the most exciting examples of Chardonnay coming out of Washington State

***Editor's Choice*** A blend of fruit sources used for the winery's three single-vineyard wines, this bottling saw no new oak and is light golden in color with reserved notes of mineral, almond, pineapple and lees. Full bodied, rich and layered with a creamy feel, it's appealing now but should have a long life ahead.

Bottle Size: .750
