    Style: Rich & Creamy

    Item no. 94706

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Bright and lively, this medium-bodied Chardonnay opens with pleasing stone fruit and light tropical aromas with hints of vanilla. On the palate, the wine offers a soft, creamy texture that surrounds the solid fruit core of melon, pear and mango. Aging in French oak lends a roasted almond character to this rich, ripe and perfectly-balanced wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Chardonnay Belle Terre Vineyard (which sees full malolactic fermentation) offers more tropical fruit, honeyed apricot, and hints of mango, orange marmalade, and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and tasty, with good acidity as well as a long finish, this stunning value should last for 2-3 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Reminiscent of the 2000, this wine has a crisp, linear character that emphasizes minerals rather than the overt tropical fruits the vineyard shows in warmer vintages. It’s a fine, dry, acidic Chardonnay whose oak-infused lemon and lime flavors will complement sourdough bread and cracked crab.
