Bonterra Vineyards Chardonnay Mendocino County 2009
We've been farming organically since 1987. Because it's our belief that organic grapes make better wine.
Very zippy. Good with roast chicken. A little bit too assertive but acceptable. Yummy and interesting for its price. Very fun and upbeat wine.
Honey and light butter/creme...little bit of fruit, honeydew, pear. nice finish
One half glass

Clean and refreshing, with snappy apple, melon, spice and light honeysuckle notes. Full-bodied, ending with a fruity aftertaste that offers depth and complexity. Drink now.
An initial impression of rich, buttery cream turns to aromas of honey and toasted almonds, quickly followed by pineapple, lemon and cr?me brulee. This wine has a refreshing, bright, clean minerality with a vibrant tartness and lemon zest.
Shows the purity of flavor and structure that Bonterra wines are famous for. Ultraclean and racy in acidity, this Chardonnay stars ripe varietal flavors of pineapple, oranges and limes. A touch of oak adds welcome richness.
Rich and oaky, with mouthwatering acidity, this Chardonnay offers tiers of ripe pineapple, green apple, honey, vanilla and cinnamon flavors. It's an easy sipper that offers lots of value for the price.
Clean and flinty, with fresh, spicy lime, green apple and honeydew melon nuances. Drink now.
Year after year, Bonterra crafts splendidly pure varietal wines, from organically-grown grapes, and in large quantities that make them easy to find. The '06 Chard is delicious in pineapple, sweet Meyer lemon, tangerine, lime and caramelized vanilla oak flavors that finish clean and long. What a super value.
For our chardonnay, we have adopted a style that deliberately uses a combination of oak and stainless steel to emphasize the crisp freshness of our organic fruit. Our organic fruit from Mendocino o ffers the characteristic flavors of green and baked apples, pears and citrus to our chardonnay.
