Benziger Chardonnay San Giacom 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Sangiacomo Vineyard Chardonnay is a lean, elegant wine with a rich lovely mouthfeel. In this vintage, there is a slight hint of nutmeg in the nose and flavors of green apple, peach and pear.

Region: USA » California » Napa » Carneros

This starts off quite floral in the glass with light toast and spice tones backed up layers of vanilla, pollen, a touch of honeycomb, apricot and kiwi fruits. Enters the mouth with really piercing freshness and then expands on the palate with soft, creamy yellow fruits balancing modest notes of vanilla and wood spice. The backend shows more citrus and orange tones that lead to a long, fairly luxurious, butter tinged finish. This is complex, balanced and elegant and ready for lobster! 90pts
