Editorial Reviews for Alta Maria Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley
Yeasty and bright on the nose with notes of seashells and salty minerals backed up by a hint of licorice. This is subtle and seductively complex on the nose. There’s very well judged wood here in balance with the fruit and allowing the bright core of mineral to shine through. Whoa, this is explosive up front with real purity to the ripe fruit that has excellent verve and near perfect richness. Clear and vibrant with lime laced orchard fruit that yield to cutting acids on the backend, this is wonderfully refreshing and sappy with great mineral follow through on the moderately long finish. It’s a bit hot on the finish but a great bottle of Chardonnay. A wine to buy! 93pts
Floral aromas with a lot of fresh lemon juice. Good, fresh acidity, more lemon flavor and a hint of sweetness.
Everything a chardonnay should be! Perfectly walks the line between crisp fruit and oak. It's just simply, awesome and delicious!
Interesting aroma with a little caramel. Light and summer-like.
