User Reviews for Chumeia Chardonnay Madera Simpson Vineyard

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 vintage of Simpson Vineyard Chardonnay, marks Chumeia's 6th year producing Chardonnay from this warm climate. Winemaker Lee Nesbitt believes it takes at least five years to understand what the dynamics of the vineyards are, what the French call "the end of the terroir." The french say terroir is everything that encompasses the vineyard to the bottle or the life of the wine. This Chardonnay was 70% barrel ferrmented and aged for 12 months in 100% French oak. The tropical fruit flavors are attributed by the sandy loam soils and warm climate; this wine is reminiscent of an island in the tropics. "This is a remarkable amount of Chardonnay for the price. Aromas of fragrant green apple, pear and cream soda spill from the glass. Your palate will first taste the pear, apple and butter, then finish with more butter and soft oak flavors. If you enjoy lively bright fruit and buttery Chardonnays, this one will be your new best friend."Winemaker Lee NesbittPricing -(per bottle equivalents)1 case 2 cases 3 cases$9.00 $8.50 $8.50 Here is a printer friendly version of our tasting notes: 04 Chumeia Chardonnay Simpson Vineyard Sugar: .06 Months in barrel: 12 Months Oak: French
