The 2018 Mayacamas Chardonnay is lively and fresh, featuring acacia blossom, lemon zest, marzipan, and green pear notes underpinned by lingering salinity. A firm acid backbone will make for a mouthwatering finish over the next 15 years.

96 Wine Enthusiast - Made from decades-old dry-farmed vines planted to the Wente clone in rocky, volcanic soils, this is a stunning wine, flinty, fleshy and expansive, with undeniable minerality. Lemon zest, meringue and pear contrast against persistent acidity and a lasting briny tone that lifts the palate further.
 
94 James Suckling - Mayacamas always delivers such focused and well-crafted chardonnay like this with cooked-apple, pear, light vanilla and seashell character on the palate. It’s tight and super integrated with a tight, creamy palate that goes on for minutes. Serious structure.Mayacamas always delivers such focused and well-crafted chardonnay like this with cooked-apple, pear, light vanilla and seashell character on the palate.

92 Vinous - The 2018 Chardonnay is an attractive wine, but it is also stylistically a bit different from some of the wines of the past. Creamy and silky in feel, with distinctly tropical notes. I am used to seeing wines with more structure. This is an especially airy, perfumed, easygoing style. Drinking window: 2021 - 2030
