Gainey's Evan's Ranch Vineyard, planted in the cool Santa Rita Hills appellation in 1997, has reached its stride and is now consistently producing distinctive, high quality grapes, creating a distinctive house style for Gainey Chardonnay.
The 2005 vintage produced some outstanding wines, and the 2005 Chardonnay is one of them. Its fascinating nose reveals lovely poached pear and baked apple aromas enhanced by creamy vanilla, marzipan, and buttered popcorn scents, with hints of gardenia, tea rose, kaffir lime and toasted oak adding intrigue and complexity.
On the palate, the wine boasts a creamy, mouth-coating texture with exuberant green apple and lemon rind flavors gaining further interest from subtle peanut brittle and mineral notes, while balanced acidity keeps the whole package fresh and lively.
