Bonterra Mendocino County Chardonnay 2005 Wine Review (NW)
Nose of pear, fig, and some chalky minerals
There is such a wide variety of Chardonnay styles on the market today. This one is more of the crisp, bright style than the round, buttery style. It has very nice fruit layers and an underlying backbone of minerals.
Bonterra prides itself on delicious, organically-produced wines. They produce a nice line-up priced in the teens. I paid $13 for this bottle and often see it for that price when I'm in stores. Raise a glass!
