Gundlach Bundschu Chardonnay Rhinefarm Vineyard Sonoma Valley

Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) Intense aromas of pear and green apple fill the nose. The mid-palate displays integrated vanillin and fruit components, balanced by generous natural acidity and a long toasty finish.

    Aromas of white pear, pineapple and vanilla with hints of allspice characterize the nose. Elegant, complex flavors of sweet and sour lemon and a stony, mineral character fill the palate. Excellent acidity and balance culminate in a focused, fruit driven-finish.

    (2005 Vintage) This lean and limited wine steers to stiffness and acidy angularity without ever finding a sense of fruit filling. It shows more than a little oak, but its barrel influences wind up bringing a bit of unbuffered bitterness to the finish owing to its shortfall of fruit.
