Adrianna Chardonnay White Bones 2017
El nombre de la pequeña parcela White Bones (huesos blancos) viene dado por la composición del suelo calcáreo con presencia de fósiles de animales que vivían sobre el lecho de un río actualmente seco. Este vino expresa el carácter del terruño presentando una peculiar mineralidad.

Opinión de los críticos
The nose of the 2017 White Bones Chardonnay jumps out of the glass with its forward personality and its balsamic aromas that mix aromatic herbs and a minty touch. It's more exuberant than the 2018 or any of the White Stones I tasted next to it. The flavors are intense and pungent, with volume and length. The vines are organically farmed, which is not easy in the zone, mainly because of the ants! That has a great effect in the yields, which are reduced, and the juice is very concentrated but shows superb balance. As with the others, this is more in the style of the 2015, whereas the 2018 follows the path of the 2016. 6,000 bottles produced.
This is really incredible now. Cooked apples, mustard flowers, minerals and hints of stone. Full-bodied yet vivid and expansive with lightness and energy on the palate. Eye-opening acidity. It goes on for minutes. A great white, as always. Drink or hold.
