Bonterra Vineyards Chardonnay Mendocino County 2007
Among the many fine Chardonnays, ours stands apart for the authenticity of its fruit flavors, derived from grapes raised organically along the Russian River. A hint of oak complements the freshness of fruit and the evident notes of green apple, pear and citrus. Our wine is aged for several months to develop a rich, creamy texture that gracefully balances its fruit-forward character. Food Pairings: Filet of sole almandine, butternut squash soup and corn chowder, creamy polenta, crab or shrimp in chardonnay cream sauce, baby greens with toasted almonds, dry jack cheese and lemon zest vinaigrette, roast chicken, crab cakes, seafood salad
We've been farming organically since 1987. Because it's our belief that organic grapes make better wine.
Well rounded and pleasant. Was popular with guests I had over to taste a few Mendocino Chardonnays.
Low acidity (very smooth), apple and citric flavours, and a well-pronounced woody finish. This wine was an extremely pleasant and a very affordable discovery.

This organically-grown Chardonnay benefits from the hospitable climate of Mendocino County in the development of perfectly ripe, flavorful grapes. Barrel aging in hand-crafted French and American oak accentuates the distinctive apple-citrus flavors in this elegant Chardonnay.
A pure fruit bomb of Fuji apple and fresh lemons, with appealing flavors that deftly balance crisp and creamy. A real quaffer. Drink now.
Forward green apple, lemon-citrus and crème brûlée aromas precede bright, fully realized flavors of cinnamon-apple, ripe pear and toasty-oak vanilla. Creamy texture and finely balanced acidity add weight and lingering freshness to the palate. Fish and chicken are prime pairings, with herbed pork loin and salmon in almost every style a good match for the more venturesome.
Comprised of organic grown grapes, this 2000 Chardonnay is filled with the essences of fresh green apples, grapefruit, and other tropical flavors. Subtle oak gives balance to this wine by adding rich notes of butter and spicy vanilla. The finish is bright, refreshing, and long lasting.
Complex and concentrated aromas and flavors of peach, apple, and mineral with completely integrated oak; long, fruity finish. Crab cakes; roast chicken.
Refreshing and racy Chardonnay, with lemon-lime notes and a toasty oak edge for balance.
Clean and flinty, with fresh, spicy lime, green apple and honeydew melon nuances. Drink now.
