Ridge Mikulaco Chardonnay, 2011

005Bla bla bla bla brilliant chardonnay, bla bla bla perfect balance, bla bla bla bla not sharp or smooth but somehow so delicate and forward both at once as if Saul was transitioning on the road to Damascus bla bla bla a smidgen of oenophile bliss bla bla bla needle in a haystack if you’re on the lookout.  A mere six barrels made; I consider myself privileged to have snagged a few.  Not one qualm of dissent.

 

Price: A superb value at $25 USD from the vineyard; apparently not worthy of the Canadian market.

 

Market Liquidity: Too rare to waste words on describing how exceptional it is.
