External Reviews for Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills Sta. Rita Hills Rancho Santa Rosa
The sensational 2007 Chardonnay Rancho Santa Rosa exhibits a light to medium gold color, notes of white peaches, quince, crushed rocks, honeysuckle, and marmalade, a sensational texture, and a full-bodied mouthfeel.

Offers a tight beam of flinty citrus, green apple and tart melon fruit. Keeps the focus on fruit, yet shows a twinge of alcohol. Drink now through 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 411 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2005 Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Ashley's Vineyard 750ml
A Batard-Montrachet look-alike is the 2005 Chardonnay Sweeney Canyon. This full-bodied, powerful white boasts an amazing liqueur of minerals intermixed with bees wax, honeysuckle, marmalade, and lemon butter. With an attractive citrus/orange rind character, and a full-bodied, layered, super-duper mouthfeel as well as richness, it is a stunning Chardonnay to consume over the next 6-10 years.
The 2005 Chardonnay Mount Carmel (a site which Brewer-Clifton now farms exclusively) exhibits honeysuckle, lemon butter, a hint of popcorn, and orange rind in a full-bodied, deep, chewy style that reminds me of some of the old Batard-Montrachets made by Domaine Michel Niellon in the late seventies and eighties.
Fragrant and complex with floral aromas of lemon pebble citrus and green apple that are delivered on a beam. Tightly wound and sharply focused this is long and persistent on the finish with excellent acidity. Drink now through 2010. 713 cases made. JL Wine Spectator.
