2016 Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch

Media Reviews

Antonio Galloni

Shafer`s 2016 Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch is focused, tightly wound and bristling with energy. Lemon confit, white flowers, mint and crushed rocks are all vivid and finely cut in this very pretty, nuanced wine. Slightly tropical notes develop with air but the 2016 is marked by its sense of drive and tension. The 2016 was done in 75% new oak and 25% steel, with blocked malolactic fermentation. 93 points
