Fetzer Chardonnay Mendocino Private Collection 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Sundial Chardonnay is characteristically golden straw in color, with aromas of tropical fruit like mango, pineapple, banana, ripe Kiwi and honeydew melon alongside notes of cinnamon, vanilla bean, lemon grass with hints of hazelnut and cloves. The wine is crafted to be fruit-forward, medium weight, with crisp citrus and lingering melon, pear and crème fraiche flavors. The balanced mouthfeel leads to a wonderfully lingering finish. We’ll never disappoint you with our Chardonnay: it’s like saying hello to an old friend.

This 2011 is fairly simple with only moderate fruit. It has pear in the nose and is an agreeable wine. No real flaws, just a lighter style Chardonnay. My rating -- 16.5
