Bogle Chardonnay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A rich and elegant wine with layers of complexity. Fresh tropical fruits like pineapple and mango greet both the nose and palate upon first sip, followed up by a touch of lemon cream. Complimented by more creamy notes of butterscotch and caramel, the wine has a long, lingering finish hinting of toasty oak. Enjoy this wine with just about everything you can pair it with.

Although the Bogle family has been farming since the mid-1800's, it was not until 1968 that the father and son team of Warren and Chris Bogle planted their first 20 acres of wine grapes in Clarksburg, California. In this small farming community nestled along the Sacramento River, the Bogle family's years of hard work have developed into an impressive grape growing operation, as well as a nationally acclaimed winery. Today Bogle Vineyards farms over 1,200 acres of wine grapes in the Delta region. While the winery was established ten years after the first grapes were planted, its success has grown tremendously along with the vineyards. The success of Bogle over the years is firmly rooted in one thing: the day-to-day involvement of the Bogle family in the hands-on effort to produce and promote quality wines. Patty Bogle became involved in the early years of the vineyards with her late husband Chris, when they planted fields together in the early 1970's. Patty took over operation of the winery in 1989 and has directed production to new and exciting heights. Patty's daughter Jody also contributes to the family business by being active in customer support, as well as running the wine club and handling all international sales. Patty's son Warren, named after the founder of Bogle Vineyards, is the sixth generation of the Bogle family to farm this fertile Delta region. Like his grandfather and father, Warren understands that in order to produce quality wines, you must first produce quality grapes. This tradition of respect for the land and the vines is crucial to the success of Bogle wines. The production of Bogle wine is influenced by this family tradition as well as the ever-changing trends in the wine industry. Since 1992, Bogle Winery has participated in the California Appellation Program. In this program, winemakers source fruit from some of the best vineyards in the state and blend them with Bogle's Estate Vineyards in Clarksburg, thus assuring that the wines benefit from many of the incredible grape growing regions of California. Each and every Bogle wine created is a unique and exciting blend with true varietal character and an approachable style. With their deep commitment to quality, the Bogle family wouldn't have it any other way. Read less

light yellow with green hue in glass - nose - holly fruit batman...smells like pineapple/banana - perhaps cocconut? The mouth feel carries on the same, with a medium bodied, somewhat creamy feel. Must say, those that have had the Yoplait yogurt with the same fruit combo above, if you close your eyes, you will think you are drinking this! So, not a bad little wine. Is it a classic Chard? Don't think so, but that is what i'm exploring. Very interesting wine, good value, and i would suggest you try some.

Bogle has a solid reputation for its reliable, well-produced varietal wines at very affordable prices. This barrel-fermented Chardonnay offers appealing citrus and tropical fruit notes with a creamy texture. The wine's hint of residual sugar makes it an ideal match for savory/sweet fare, like a marinated pork loin with fruit coulis.

Bogle Chardonnay is barrel fermented with sur-lies aging, and partial malolactic fermentation creates aromas of green apple and ripe pear with cream and butter aromas and palate feel. The spice and toast of the oak is also noted in both the palate and aromas but are not overwhelming

Fresh and lively, full-bodied and smooth-textured, with vibrant green apple, melon, ripe pear and honeysuckle flavors, ending with a long, full finish. Drink now through 2011. 250,000 cases made. -JL
