Top Value Chardonnay Tasted 2/14

3. Vina Leyda Chardonnay (2013)

« Prev Next » 3 of 5
Average price: $20.99 from 13 stores
Classic Chardonnay on the nose with well judged oak adding vanilla and spice note to the core of pineapple and citrus fruits that pick up a touch of mango with air. A leading edge of creamy richness quickly gives way to tart acids that drive the green apple, pineapple, and lime flavors across the palate. This has some heft to it but the great acids keep it lively and engaging in the mouth. The oak is very well judged, lending some support on the plate but staying largely in the background until the moderately long finish where vanilla and spice emerge to add detail to the trailing edges of the apple and lime fruit. Very well done. 88pts
