    Winemaker's Notes:

    Winemakers dream of perfect vintages, and 2007 came close. A cold winter delayed budbreak and flowering by several weeks, but spring was exceptionally dry, with roughly 50% of normal rainfall. As a result, Chardonnay grape clusters tended to be small, which accelerated ripening. Although harvest began early, it extended into late October, with pristine fruit displaying wonderfully concentrated flavors balanced by crisp acidity. Our 2007 Chardonnay is sleek and vibrant, with radiant citrus and tropical fruit aromas complemented by light buttery scents and Santa Rita Hills' telltale minerality. (Nearly two-thirds of the fruit is from Evan's Ranch.) The palate offers creamy lemon curd, lime and ripe melon flavors with excellent mid-palate verve and intensity, while the long, mouthwatering finish is buoyed by refreshing mineral tones. This delicious, beautifully structured Chardonnay will make a fine companion over the next several years to shellfish, lighter seafood dishes, roasted fowl and mild cheeses.

    ""A beautiful Chardonnay, solidly in the Gainey style of balance and integrity, but also showing the cool climate terroir of its origins as well as the excellence of the vintage. The result is this crisp, richly oaked but balanced young wine. It brims with tropical fruits and spices."

    This doesn't even taste remotely like a chardonnay. It is sweet, fruity, and awful! No grassy, oakey, cleanness. Just sweet awfullness!
