Byron Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 Offers pure, rich, ripe fruit, with touches of ripe pear, apple and honeydew melon, gaining depth and body and ending with a complex finish. Drink now through 2012. Wine Tasting Notes Our Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays fruit-forward citrus aromas, accented by hints of mineral and toasty oak. On the palate, it is richly textured with cream, toast, lime and minerals.

In the 1980s Santa Barbara gathered fame as a cluster of serious vintners started producing Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that were praised for their character, depth and honesty.

Brown’s innovative gravity-feed winemaking facility and intensive viticultural experiments helped revolutionize cold-climate grape growing in California. Today, Byron is focused on single vineyard and regional bottlings of Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the best benchland sites throughout Santa Barbara County. Read less

Nice apple and pear tart aromas with some fresh pie crust and baking spice accents. Luscious texture and has a creamy weight but retains a nice acidity to balance it and keep it vibrant. Tree fruit flavors with hints of apple, pear and some peach as well as hints of nectarine citrus and an ever so slight herbal note. Bright, crisp and well structured. Very tasty and drinking very well at 6 years! 92 pts. 6/9/13
