Central Coast Chardonnay


3-D Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2018

Fantastic chardonnay from Greg Brewer that is only going to get better and better with more time in the bottle. A perfect match for a spectacular day in Eagle Harbor on Lake Superior…and even better to celebrate Vanessa’s paper being accepted for publication today! 🥳 — 4 days ago

More water than all of the other Great Lakes combined…plus three additional Lake Eries! 🙃

Pellet Estate

Sunchase Vineyard Chardonnay

Pellet Estate Petaluma Gap Sunchase Vineyard Unoaked Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast, California

Light yellow in color with a golden hue.

Fruity nose of citrus, lemons, apples, pears, light spices, light wood, earth, light herbs and white pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with limes, light grapefruits, citrus, light peaches, light wood, earth, herbs and white pepper.

Nice finish with spices and limes.

This is a very tasty Chardonnay from Sonoma County. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with a tangy finish.

Good right out of the bottle, and after 60 minutes of airtime it shows spicy notes.

This Single Vineyard feels like a fruity white Burgundy. A good quality wine.

Not sure why, but I definitely get light wood notes both on the nose and palate. Interesting and delicious.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with grilled salmon.

Grapes are grown at over 1,000 feet of elevation on rocky clay soil. Aged in stainless steel for 8 months. Only 276 cases produced.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

I have had the experience, too, of getting oak notes in unoaked wine. Never figured it out.

Liquid Farm

White Hill Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay 2018

Pop and pour yesterday. Notes from day 2 open. On the nose: soft smoke and chalk, apple, lemon, a hint of reduction...lovely nose. On the palate: chalk, sour apple, lemon, loads of wet stone...fantastic acidity and good density...maybe my favorite incarnation of this wine so far... — 9 days ago

Jackson Estate Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 2018

Color of bubbly saturated gold. Nose is full of ripe tropical fruits, like pineapple, mangos, and banana, plus some nutty note and mineral. Nose is full. Taste is following the nose yet lighter, with addition of some more flowering note. Almost dry and a bit warm from nutty note. Aftertaste shows some more mineral and a bit more sweet. On par. — 16 days ago

Love their Pinot too

Au Bon Climat

Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2018

A real bargain for $25. Light Ruby with aromas of red fruit and gentle perfume spice. On the palate strawberry and cranberry with tea and baking spices on a smooth tannin structure. Fresh finish with a medium length ending. Solid value, the fruit should calm down a bit in a year or so. — 9 days ago

Surprisingly smooth. Plenty of fruit tones but not too much. A great Chardonnay everyday drinking. Didn’t know what to expect, but really happy we tried it. Sure to be one of our go to evening wines. — 5 days ago

Central Coast Chardonnay 2019

Stunningly good! Great vanilla toast lead-in opens up to a well balanced citrus handshake that rides along a jet stream of smooth, full bodied greatness. Nice, supple and satisfying finish rounds out the glass.. — 7 days ago
