I don't generally drink white wine, but tasted this and had to buy a bottle. It's very light and one I'd purchase again. Read more

sour butter, if that makes any sense. Not very sweet on the initial attack but coats the mouth with a nice butterscotch finish. like a werther's original candy.

The initial rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and almonds, followed quickly by aromas of pineapple and lemon. Very nice.

Very zippy. Good with roast chicken. A little bit too assertive but acceptable. Yummy and interesting for its price. Very fun and upbeat wine.

A hint of oak complements the freshness of fruit and the evident notes of green apple, pear and citrus. Bonterra Chardonnay is aged for several months to develop a rich, creamy texture that gracefully balances its fruit-forward character.

Our organic fruit from Mendocino o ers the characteristic flavors of green apples, pears, and citrus to our chardonnay. We ferment 70% of the juice in a combination of French and American oak, which is allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation to create a rich, creamy wine with just a touch of new oak spice. The remaining 30% is fermented in stainless steel to preserve the crisp fresh fruit favors. We age most of the wine using previously-used or neutral oak in order for these fresh fruit characteristics to shine through. New oak was used for just 16% of the wine to give this chardonnay a nice vanilla note.An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest that is absolutely, positively Bonterra Chardonnay...

Cool climate aromas of pineapple are an unexpected treat, followed by the more traditional Mendo green apple, with a twist of lemon and a touch of vanilla from the new French Oak. In the mouth, you'll find a solid backbone with bold citrus and tropical flavors, balanced with a creaminess that lingers on the finish.
