Bernardus Chardonnay 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Big and ripe on the nose with dripping pineapple fruit paired with toasty apricot tart and plenty of vanilla and ginger cream. Not as big as one might expect from the nose but certainly ripe with tropical fruit flavors redolent of mango and papaya along with over-ripe pineapple and creme brulee flavors. Theres plenty of acidity here so this is fine textural but it will only appeal to those who prefer very ripe fruit driven styles of Chardonnay. The oak is very well covered by the fruit here, just peeking out with spice and a hint of tannin on the moderately long finish, which show a hint of heat. 87pts

Bernardus Winery & Vineyard:
The focus of Bernardus is to create wines that flatter the palate and stimulate the imagination. Our Marinus Estate Bordeaux-style red wine is the centerpiece of Ben Pon's dream. It is complemented by Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc from cool coastal climate vineyards. We also offer limited bottlings of small production and vineyard designate wines, which are available exclusively through the tasting room and wine club...taste a dream.
