Edi Simcic, Kozana Chardonnay
(koh-ZAH-nah SHAR-doh-nay)

 

Tasting Notes: This stunning single-vineyard Chardonnay, from Edi Simcic’s oldest vines (35 years), originates from the estate’s highest altitude vineyard as well. The sheer power and delineation of this wine reveal his decision to bottle this patch of vineyard separately. Baffling complexity begins in the nose with white truffles, spiced gingerbread, toasted cardamom, marzipan, and sea brine followed by a voluptuous palate of Meyer lemon creme brulee, golden apple, crushed limestone powder, and toasted almond that finishes with a saline spike.
