Buena Vista Carneros Winery Chardonnay 2004
These Chardonnay grapes were hand harvested at night September 9-21, 2004. Due to the geological and topographical diversity of our estate, we harvest blocks based upon ripeness and flavor maturity. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and traditional Burgundian techniques were employed including barrel fermentation, 100% ML and eight months on the lees in French oak barrels (32% new). There’s no doubt about the appellation here. The aromas are a combination of lemon drop, green apple, orange blossom, clove, hazelnut screaming Carneros from start to finish. The flavors are lemon lime, apple, pear fruit driven with racy acidity and rich lemon cream and subtle vanilla/spice, which adds more texture. Our 2004 Carneros Chardonnay beautifully conveys site, variety and vintage.
External Reviews for Buena Vista Carneros Winery Chardonnay
Wine Enthusiast ReviewTighter and more citrusy than the regular Chardonnay, with the oak coming across as more restrained, although the proportion of new wood is undoubtedly higher. Its a subtly nutty, textural wine, with apple and lemon notes that linger on the finish.
