The 2018 Division Chardonnay "Un" strikes an incredible balance, with brightness and lift on the palate to match the richness from the fermentation in oak. Fresh-cut grass and matchstick-like flint combine with crisp green apple, a touch of grapefruit rind, and brioche straight from the oven for a bright Chardonnay that will satisfy even the biggest of Chardonnay skeptics.
