Eric Kent's most nimble and elegant Chardonnay, 1 KM West features vineyard parcels that emphasize the less bombastic nature of the grape. Not to be confused with the aggressively steely new Chablis style in vogue with some, this iteration successfully strives for supreme balance between fruit, acid and oak. We think you'll find this rendition a very flexible Chardonnay. Lovely on its own but also quite versatile with a variety of foods. As a cellar candidate, we expect it to follow the path of previous vintages: broadening on the palate as the fruit deepens with hazelnut and roasted apple/pear flavors revealing themselves all the more over time.
