Orin Swift Chardonnay, Mannequin, California, 2015
Orin Swift Mannequin Chardonnay opens with rich aromatics of Meyer lemon, honeydew, butterscotch and honeysuckle, with accents of jasmine, white pepper and fennel pollen. A massive palate consists of ripe white peach and a bold Werther's Original entry and a layered mid-palate of nectarines, pineapple and honey. A touch of green apple and wet stone culminate in a concise creme brulee finish. Chardonnay from California. From winemaker Dave Phinney.
