    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 La Rinconada Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from our estate vineyards in the Santa Rita Hills. The vintage was characterized by low yields and intense flavors. This special bottling comes from our two best blocks (Wente and Clone 15), whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented. With the traditional Burgundian technique of lees stirring and barrel aging, this wine has developed richness and elegance sought after in fine Chardonnay. Intense but balanced, our flagship Chardonnay has tropical and citrus notes with hints of nutmeg. On the palate this wine shows the classic Santa Rita qualities of minerality and crisp acid.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich in acids and steely minerals, which gives the wine a tart scour, grounding the pineapples, pears and honeyed oak. Very nice and classic, and should gradually develop bottle complexities through 2013. Editors' Choice.

    Pale yellow-gold hue. Sweet, smoky oak scents with undertones of apricot, peach and vanilla. Flavors of pineapple and caramel laced with minerals and crisp acids. Lengthy, even, sweet finish with wet stone-like mineral impressions.

    A full bodied chardonnay, gold in color with lots of fruit. The finish was a bit uneven, but it opens up with time. Don't over chill.

    Very light fragrant flavor straight out of the bottle. Dry and pleasant in the mouth. Not something I would go back for more.
