Dierberg Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Immediate impressions of lemon curd and orange blossom are followed by aromas of hazelnut, allspice and Meyer lemon. On the palate, the wine is sleek and refined, with a lithe texture and mouthwatering acidity. Flavors of citrus - lemon rind, tangelo and lemongrass - echo the aromatic impressions of this Chardonnay, creating seamless wine, at once powerful and impeccably balanced. Enjoy this wine with subtly flavored hard cheeses to accentuate its freshness and subtle nutty impressions, or cellar for 2 to 3 years and savor with heartier seafood and pork dishes.

Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. If a little withdrawn and taking its time to unfold in the nose, this juicy, nicely filled effort is long on fresh, green apple fruit, and it picks up a bit of extra richness from a deftly placed bit of sweet oak. Rounded in feel and then showing a slight acidy lift at the finish, it is a thoroughly tasty and easy-to-drink wine at the moment but also one that might well improve over the next couple of years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Chardonnays from the Dierberg Vineyard are characterized by their strong impression of acidity and by a finish that lingers for nearly a minute on the palate. They are among the rare Californian Chardonnays that will gracefully improve with age for 5 years or more. Immediate impressions of lemon curd and orange blossom are followed by aromas of hazelnut allspice and meyer lemon. On the palate the wine is sleek and refined with a lithe texture and mouthwatering acidity. Flavors of citrus-lemon rind tangelo and lemongrass-echo the aromatic impressions of this Chardonnay creating seamless wine at once powerful and impeccably balanced. Enjoy this wine with subtly flavored hard cheeses to accentuate its freshness and subtle nutty impressions or cellar for 2 to 3 years and savor with heartier seafood and pork dishes.
