" The 2018 Chardonnay Beresini Vineyard Cuvee Torchiana sashays out of the glass with knockout scents of honey-drizzled white peaches, pineapple upside-down cake, grapefruit and ginger cake with hints of cashews and honeydew melon. Medium-bodied, the palate is refreshing and laden with intense stone fruit and savory flavors, featuring with a gorgeous creaminess to the texture and a long, layered finish. A barrel selection of the best barrels from Beresini vineyard (planted to Hyde Selection Wente Clone), this very clever Chardonnay is as scrumptious as it is intellectually stimulating. Fans of this grape are definitely going to want a few bottles of this!"
