Cambria 'Katherines Vineyard' Chardonnay 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

So elegant and sophisticated, this is a great value in California Chardonnay. Although it's dry, it's rich and delicious in pineapples, pears, mangoes and honey, with an opulent overlay of sweet oak. The brisk acidity is balanced, and gets the mouth watering. This Chardonnay has aromas of fresh mango, white peach, citrus, vanilla bean and spice. The same fruit characters are on the palate and are accentuated by a bright, balanced acidity and subtle oak spice. The finish is lingering, clean and crisp.

Cambria Katherin's Vineyard is always one of the best value Central Coast Chards. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 2012 91 points saying "At first, there’s a slight green herb funkiness of sharp dill on the nose of this single-vineyard offering from the Jackson Family-owned Cambria brand, where Santa Maria native Denise Shurtleff has made the wine since 1999. Once sipped, that evolves into a nice smokiness that sits atop tart green apple and Asian pear."

Leading off the three Chardonnays, the 2012 Katherine’s Vineyard offers beautiful flint-like minerality to go with stone fruits, white flowers, vanilla curd and brioche on the nose. Medium-bodied, tight, fresh and elegant, it’s a superb value to enjoy over the coming couple of years.

Bright with citrus, apple, peach, and vanilla aromas. Rich, mouthfilling flavors of grapefruit, citrus blossom, white peach and sweet oak lead to a crisp finish with a lasting impression of spicy oak.

Full-bodied and smooth, but not overly oaked. Lots of juicy tropical fruit flavors with well-integrated caramel, hazelnut and vanilla. Totally lush and likable.
