Medium intensity aromas of lemon, and tropical fruit like mango and pineapple. On the palate the wine is dry, high acidity and has wet-stone like flavors in addition to the lemon. It is sour on the palate, it has gone too lean. Just OK. #ojaivineyard #biennacido #chardonnay #sbcounty #santabarbaracounty #santamaria — 3 months ago
Nothing better than a well aged Chardonnay and fatty, cold water fish. This bottle is our go to pairing for grilled steelhead trout.
Nose is evolving since my prior post, oxidized green apple peel and cold caramel.
Palate is lightly sweet lemon curd/custard, baked red apple, cooked lemon, warm granite dust and a zing of acidity on the close.
Our feline house managers pestered for comfortable portions on the trout, they are good boys and girls, generally, so we endulge.
Great night listening to Hugh Masekela and Mongo Santamaria on the HiFi, everything complimented!
One bottle left, then we move along to the next vintage. — 2 years ago
Sweet cherries, a hint of spice and a velvety finish help create palate for Spanish manchego, apples and an Sicilian black fig preserve with an olive oil crusted cracker. To die for! — 6 months ago

Really excellent dry white with good structure and complexity. Lemon, earth, minerality, crisp and satisfying on it own or with food. 2015 vintage. — 4 years ago
Corsica, so hot right now! What a pleasant drinking wine. A bit of weight and spice notes that crescendos into light lemon joy. — 5 months ago
