Stephanie and Brian Terrizzi founded Broadside Wines with the goal of crafting juice that showcases the unique soils and topography of Paso Robles. Working with consulting winemaker extraordinaire Adam Lazarre, they absolutely nailed it, producing elegant, well-balanced wines that deftly display varietally correct fruit characters and convey a distinct sense of place.
The Broadside winemaking team approaches each wine as a blank canvas, thus capturing the vine’s personality, the soil in the vineyard and the influence of mother nature. They source their fruit from sustainably-farmed vineyards in order preserve the purity of fruit and terroir. Today’s wine epitomizes their winemaking philosophy and style.
The 2018 Broadside Chardonnay is sourced form vineyards in Paso Robles and the Edna Valley, all within the Central Coast AVA.
The Chardonnay was tank fermented on the lees. 25% of the juice was aged in oak while the remainder was aged in stainless steel tanks. Both tank and oak portions were left sur-lie with biweekly stirring to enhance richness and mouthfeel. The wine opens with pear and nectarine aromas that show good clarity and pick up smoky lees and toasted grain nuances with aeration. Ripe tropical flavors of mango and pineapple with a firm seam of acidity wrap around the tongue, suspending flavors well into the finish. There is a pronounced lushness to the wine that adds both weight and complexity.*
90 points, Vinous:
“Limpid gold. Poached pear, yellow apple, and a hint of ginger on the fragrant nose. Fleshy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy orchard fruit, orange zest, vanilla flavors, and a late suggestion of smokiness. Finishes long and spicy, with a repeating vanilla note and a hint of anise.” (2/20)
