Fess Parker Chardonnay Santa Barbara County Select Cuvée 2009
Wine Tasting Notes This wine provides the consumer with a classic Santa Barbara County Chardonnay experience at an excellent value. Partially barrel fermented and aged in a combination of French and American oak for 8 months, citrus and melon aromas predominate on the nose. Green apple, grapefruit and mild pear notes make for a refreshing, crisp sensation on the palate. This wine is crafted in a very approachable style while maintaining excellent body - a perfect by-the-glass choice.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Too many oaks!
WOW is all I can say; at a devout chardonnay lover I was not expecting too much from this 2006 Melange Blanc; it has a sparkle and softness all at the same time which I found unusual; the tast actually bubbles on your tongue; I'm hooked.
External Reviews for Fess Parker Chardonnay Santa Barbara County Select Cuvée
Run, don't walk to buy up cases of this beautiful, well-priced Chardonnay. It's rich and sumptuous in vanilla oak and lees-inspired flavors of pineapples, pears and lime tart. Easy to find, with production of 17,496 cases.
Aromas of citrus, lemon cream and honey combine with toasty oak, nutmeg, yellow apple and orange blossom to create this refreshing Chardonnay. On the palate, flavors of citrus, green apple, honey, light cream, cantelope and vanilla couple with great textu
This wineandrsquo;s orange and green melon flavors handle oak with subtlety. The wood adds warm, honeyed accents to the earthy, creamy finish. For a lemon roast chicken.
Ripe, with tropical, apricot, tangerine and lemon peel flavors that have good focus through the finish. Drink now.
Readers looking for a crisp, elegant, medium-bodied Chardonnay should check out the 2004 Chardonnay Santa Barbara. Tropical fruit and peach characteristics emerge from this tasty, soft, well-balanced cuvee. It is meant to be consumed over the next several years.
It should be no surprise that this estate's quality continures to go from strength to strength. The two Chardonnays I tasted included the tropical fruit-scented and flavored 2001 Chardonnay Santa Barbara. With good definition, ripeness, and fruit, it is not complicated, but is a pretty, consumer-friendly Chardonnay to enjoy over the next year.
The 2005 Chardonnay Santa Barbara reveals copious amounts of honeysuckle, buttered popcorn, and pineapple characteristics offered in a medium to full-bodied style meant to be consumed over the next several years.
