Our new vintage of Chardonnay reflects the high quality of our 2009 fruit. Its fresh, lovely aromas are keyed on ripe yellow apple, lemon curd and honeyed white peach scents accompanied by hints of light buttercream, mineral, autolyzed yeast and spicy/toasty oak. On the medium-full palate, the wine offers rich, creamy, golden citrus, spiced apple and ripe peach flavors, with notes of pineapple, lime, mineral and toasted vanilla gracing the long, refreshing, lip-smacking finish. Beautifully structured, with succulent varietal flavors enlivened by perfectly balanced acidity, this delicious Chardonnay will make wonderful drinking over the next one to two years with a wide range of seafood, poultry and vegetarian entrees.
Gainey's basic Santa Rita Cardonnay is a fine wine, dry, crisp and minerally, this is a good price for it. It shows a nice melange of oak influences with peach, pear and pineapple fruit flavors.
