    Winemaker's Notes:

    Burgundian in sensibility but with California style is one way of describing Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays- Structure and restraint melded with bountiful opulence is another. In the glass, buttery brioche marries with tropical fruits in an irresistible elixir that will leave the bottle drained before you know it. Try it with turbot for a match of delicacy and richness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Opulent and captivating, this Chard captures the rich, bells and whistles style of California, while maintaining a sense of style and elegance. Coastal acidity provides a bracing structure for the ripe pineapple, lime, pear, white flower and mineral flavors.

    I like this chardonnay. Some have described it as oak, oak, oak. Yes the oak is there but not overly so. This is the classic California style chardonnay and a great example of it. Hints of pear, and peach with a note of lemon. sweet and buttery and with a very satisfying finish. A step up from a grocery store chardonnay at similar prices.
