93 Points Wine & Spirits “An older planting of mostly pinot noir in the rain shadow of the Coast Range, Bishop Creek has 2.5 acres of chardonnay, farmed organically, on sedimentary soils. It’s a generous wine, with high-toned lemon-lime scents deepening with air to something more wheaty and substantial, like pineapple. But the flavors remain tart and lively, with a kind of bakedlime rim of flavor suggesting richness and raciness at once. Energetic and lively, this is built to age.”


The wine is still reserved aromatically, but shows a pale straw color in the glass and offers pear, pear skin, meyer lemon and wet stone on the nose. The palate is defined by minerality and a vibrant core of acidity. Some oak iimpact is still present in the wine, which contributes subtle flavors of vanilla and toast. Juicy pear and citrus persist through the lengthy finish. A young wine which will improve greatly with age.
