Grape / Blend
Delicate, pale yellow in color. You are immediately drawn into the glass as notes of lime and wet stone with hints of chalk and citrus blossom greet you on the nose. As you begin to taste, the palate follows the nose, and is well-balanced between citrus notes and minerality, with a gentle reminder of kaffir lime leaves. The bright acidity and spreading mid-palate lead to a lingering, stony finish. The elegant balance found in this glass of wine makes it a delight to enjoy on its own or paired with food. Great with fresh uni or bigeye tuna tartare.

The 2015 Oceana Chablis is scented of green apples, white peaches and lemon zest with hints of crushed stones and chalk dust. Light to medium-bodied, the palate has great freshness cutting through a lovely intensity of citrus and apple flavors, finishing with persistent mineral and herbal notes. Drinking well now, I anticipate this will cellar a good four to five years.
