The cooler conditions of 2010 allowed for a straw colored Chardonnay that shows an admirable restraint, a beautiful finesse and wonderful minerality. It offers up an expressive nose of white flowers and tropical fruits intermixed with notes of kaffir lime and citrus rind. The clean, medium-bodied palate continues the citrus and tropical theme with a creamy interplay of key lime and banana cream pies tinged with notes of Madagascar vanilla and a wisp of toasty oak. The crisp finish makes this wine a pleasure to drink now, while a few years of age will undoubtedly add layers of richness.
The 2010 Chardonnay is a pretty, generous white laced with expressive tropical fruit supported by clean veins of minerality. The Chardonnay doesn’t get a whole lot of attention, but it is consistently terrific and loaded with personality.
I tasted a large number of wines at Staglin this year. It is quite clear that quality is on the rise over the last few years under the leadership of winemaker Fredrik Johansson, who previously spent time working with Thomas Rivers Brown. The 2010 Chardonnay is a pretty, generous white laced with expressive tropical fruit supported by clean veins of minerality. The Chardonnay doesn't get a whole lot of attention, but it is consistently terrific and loaded with personality.
Understated, with subtle white peach, nectarine and dried apricot notes, this gains a nice spicy edge. Pure, clean finish. Drink now through 2020.
