Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Notably rich and creamy, yet elegant and refined, this Chardonnay delivers a supple, fleshy beam of white peach, nectarine and fresh-cut flowers, with a creamy vanilla edge.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (2004 Vintage) We expect wines of size and amplitude from Neyers, and this bottling most certainly has both, but its richness derives first and last from its well-extracted ripe-apple fruit rather than from out-of-control ripeness or high-handed oak. It is the rare big-bodied Chardonnay that is nicely balanced, and it has a real chance to blossom further with time. If patience fails, team it up now with lobster or salmon dishes, but, better yet, let it sit in the cellar for another year.
