(2013 Vintage) Aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest that is absolutely, positively Bonterra Chardonnay, vintage after vintage.
"Dialed in to top dead center is what I'd call this Chardonnay that walks the tightrope between creamy and crisp, or viscous and bright if you prefer. Lemon, apple, a little honeysuckle and moderate oak spice are very well integrated in both aroma and flavor, with a long blooming finish that satisfies. A steal at this price. The Best Chardonnay and a Platinum Award winner at the 2015 Monterey International Wine Competition." ($14) 94 points, Wine Review Online, Rich Cook March, 2015
Planet Grape(2013 Vintage) Medium+ body with slightly silky mouthfeel and notes of baked yellow apple, baking spice, lemon zest, orange-vanilla ice cream and pineapple.
