Neyers Carneros District Chardonnay 2010 Wine Review (NW)
Peach and nectarine aromas on the bouquet
Full bodied and nicely textured on the palate
Finishes with golden apple, honey, and vanilla with good acidity
This Chardonnay is beautifully crafted, stylish and balanced with full flavor and good texture. It's neither the big, buttery style nor the trendy naked style. You could pair this with a lot of different dishes or just enjoy it on its own. Prepare for it to disappear quickly, though, as it's easy to drink.
I don't see this distributed widely where I live, but I ordered it online for $22. Raise a glass!
