Food Pairings for Bernardus Winery Chardonnay Monterey County
Decent but not great. Finish less clean than expected.
I love this wine but have a lot of trouble finding it. Some days I think I taste pineapple, other days I decide it's caramel. Go figure. Either way I love, love, love it.
This is being offered at the Wine & Cheese Cellar in Tehachapi, but they are also offering the Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay, which far overshadows this modest wine.
I usually love Bernardus Chard - my house wine since '97 vintage. But this wine was more bitterness than I ever experienced
Oak/mineral nose. Medium body. Banana, acidic but no lemon.

"The 2008 is a perfect expression of Monterey Chardonnay with bright aromas of apple

The Wine News ReviewBright yellow hue. Shy scents of peach, brown butter and dusty gravel. Rich, quite ripe, though very taut, flavors of buttery banana lime and oak spice. Very long close positively gushes with stone fruit and apple notes.Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90As is usually the case, Bernarduss regular Monterey Chard offers lots of bang for the buck. Dry and crisp in citrusy acids, it has complex flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, kiwi, lime and spicy coconut macaroon, with delicious oak influence.Wine Tasting NotesThe resulting wine is a perfect expression of Monterey Chardonnay, with bright citrus and tropical fruit aromas married with mineral notes and subtle toasty oak nuances. The lush, opulent palate is intense and focused with complex flavors of ripe pineapple, lime, mineral notes, and crme brulee lingering on a long, creamy finish.
