Charles Heintz Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Straw with gold leaf glints. Compelling nose of acorn squash, zucchini blossom, cooling lemon zest, green apple, lime, drawn, clarified butter, corn flakes, tiny sprinkles of dried pineapple, and banana leaf aromas. Soft lemon pith and wet peel, green orchid stem, tangy, deconstructed lime from zest to oil and pith, lemon grass, and fresh cut lemon somehow echoing green apple tart bursts; lean and sexy with myriad edible flowers, lavender, squash blossom, nasturtiums, dandelion, and others, small and subtle. Overall a great Chardonnay with elegance and calculated beauty reminiscent of a Japanese garden, or a small, manicured French palatial jardin. .

Campbell Ranch Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Cantaloupe and lemon combine with Bosc pear and warm apples aromatically. Medium mouthfeel turns complex and heavier, exhibiting grilled lemon, tangerine pith, lemon toast, the taste of vanilla’s aroma, warm yellow apple and magnolia. #chardonnay #Soujourn #sonomachardonnay #sonoma #chard — 2 years ago

Franciscan Estate

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2013

Nice #Chard from the #Napa. Golden colour, subdued bouquet, oak, citrus and apple notes. Good amount of acidity to finish off gently. #Summerwine this, paired with white asparagus and creamy hollandaise sauce. — 3 years ago


Chardonnay 2013

Clarity is nice. Green apple tinges. Not enough Malo makes this wine difficult to approach right now. Interested to see what happens in a few years. El Dorado #Chard means this guy at Holtkampt is up to something different in my home region. Don't count this winemaker out. — 5 years ago

Viña William Fèvre

Espino Chardonnay 2011

Earthy, herbaceous aromas of Brown, river mud and clay, cattails, plantain, fungus and peach, with matchsticks and ripe grapefruit. Medium-creamy texture sharpens into bright lemon citrus and Granny Smith morphing into crabapples. Green table grapes, sage, peppercorn, grapefruit and orchid textures shoot to clean river and trout bones. Racy, with twists and turns, a real ride down the rapids #chardonnay #chard #espino #chile #williamfèvre #mountainwine #maipoandes #maipo #SanJuandePirque #pirque — 2 years ago
