(From 2006 Vintage) The 2001 Sbragia Limited Release Chardonnay is like its predecessors - rich, unctuous, full-bodied and balanced. I call it `essence of Chardonnay` because of its incredible concentration and layers of flavors. I think the key to its balance is the wonderful springy acidity that holds everything in place - there`s a lot going on when you taste it but nothing dominates. This is a wine that is so complex and flavorful, you can go back to it after a big, tannic Cabernet Sauvignon!
