A nice beam of citrus on the nose with melon and vanilla cream accents
Full bodied and nicely textured on the palate
Smooth finish of lemon, floral notes, and butterscotch
Here's a very nice, well rounded Carneros Chardonnay. It has bright citrus and acidity that is well integrated with the softer flavors such as vanilla cream, butterscotch, and floral notes. This wine retails for around $30 and is a solid "step up" from the rows of $10-20 California Chardonnays. Part of its magic is that it has a sense of place, with a true Carneros taste and feel to it. Raise a glass!
