Marred by a bit of sulfur upon opening, which takes awhile to blow off, this reveals musky melon tones and notes of dried citrus peel with a spicy white pepper undercurrent. On entry this is superbly vibrant with excellent cut and a wonderful crystalline clear quality to the citrus fruits on the palate. The acid is refreshing and cleansing and really drives the sweet fresh fruit across the palate and onto the backend, which reveals just a touch of wood spice. The finish is moderately long, with lovely lemony fruit. A really refreshing and bright bottle of Chardonnay. 92pts

I have had this bottle in my cupboard for just over a year and can remember buying it when it was on a special offer at my local supermarket but I cannot now recall the price although I am sure it was not a lot.I had half of it a couple of days ago with my fish supper and the rest the following night with bread and cheese.I usually have port or a red wine with cheese but it seemed to work OK.The label says'notes of melon and vanilla' and I would not disagree.I thoght it of reasonable quality and value for money but a little bland.My problem is that I went to the London France Show back in January where I got to taste a small glass of Domaine Debray White Burgundy that was just exquisite and so much better than the Blossom Hill but to be fair it was a lot more expensive

While I may not offer many flowery adjectives, I can say that I tasted at Melville and this Chard made the strongest impression by far. It has a wonderful fruitiness up front, with a delightfully crisp and smooth finish. Definitely better than the official 3.0 rating. And at its reasonable price it's a no-brainer!

Way too austere to be consumed now. Read Parker review and was very excited to try it. I did and it lacked depth and a detailed or finessed structure. It was very tart, when first consumed almost fizzy. If it adds fruit on the palate and keeps it minerality it may become a good wine. I won't try it again for two years. It is not ready to drink now. For immediate consumption it doesn't hold a candle to an Aubert, Konsgaard, Kistler or the like.

A touch of toast oak on the nose. Tropical fruit, citrus, good acidity. Really like this Chard.

Calling all dry wine lovers, being a lover of dry wine in partiular, this is the most plessurable to drink. Its dry with fruitfull flavours twist the taste buds on the tougue. Enjoy with fish or chicken it complements both. By far the best on the shelf for under $10 a bottle, enjoy. If not enjoy while you wine and dine your friends promised to be a great hit!!! Let the crispiness of the wine touch the roof of your mouth, it almost pinches you with plessure. Like a stick snapping, explosions of this tastefull wine discovering ur tastebuds, and your taste buds doing the same. Smell the fruitfull aroma under your nose, its reminds your of the sunny state in which this lushious wine is made from. A nice summers evening with a sunset or a crisp dry winter. What more can I say try and see, you don’t know what you’ve been missing.

The 2010 Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon is a rich, deep wine that stands apart from the rest of the Chardonnays in this lineup.

Bright yellow.

WA 91 Pts - Winemaker Notes - A golden-green hue glistens brightly with opulent citrus elements of lemon peel and orange blossom. Other scents of yellow fruits such as cassava and pluot mix with decadent hints of magnolia, white cake batter, kettle corn and brown butter. A subtle hint of pebbles and pineapple basil flows in the background. On the palate the wine is rich and fleshes out these nuances more comprehensively giving it ample weight but remains vibrant and fresh. According To Robert Parker - The 2008 Chardonnay Verna s displays orange blossom, nectarine, and honeysuckle, with white peach notes. With zesty acidity and medium to full body, this is a juicy, clean, pure, and vibrant style of Chardonnay to drink over the next 3 or so years.
