2009 Santa Barbara Winery Chardonnay Santa Barbara County 13.8% $25

This smells a little coconutty with tropical fruit tones, vanilla and cocoa butter notes, so it smells like suntan lotion a bit. Pretty bright in the mouth and nicely fruity, with pineapple and green apple fruit accented by hints of vanilla custard and mineral tones. A really complete wine with a very finely balanced array of soil, fruit and wine making notes that are melded to succulent acidity. The finish shows a bit more wood spice before clear fruit and a fine mineral edge move in and linger.  The nose is a bit funny, but on the palate this rocks. 91pts
