External Reviews for Bridlewood Estate Winery Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands
Fresh floral, citrus, peach and nectarine aromas are smooth and easy-drinking in this complex white, which ends with a touch of sweetness. Drink now through 2013.
This aromatic Chardonnay displays ripe aromas and pure flavors of nectarine and golden apples; time in the bottle will allow tropical flavors to develop.
The 2009 Chardonnay Monterey (89% Chardonnay, 5% Viognier and 6% Riesling) exhibits an elegant, medium-bodied style with buttery tropical fruit notes intertwined with honeyed citrus. Crisp and zesty with moderate alcohol, it can be enjoyed over the next several years.
Made in drier, leaner style, this wine shows flower, tangerine and apricot flavors, with sharp acidity. Not real generous, but a clean sipper for appetizers.
