Fetzer Vineyards was founded in 1968 in beautiful Mendocino County by Barney and Kathleen Fetzer. One of the first California wineries to branch out into serious Chardonnay production, Fetzer remains committed to sustainability and environmentally conscious wine production. Dennis Martin oversees all wine-making at Fetzer and is assisted by Charlie Gilmore and Michael Chupp, who are in charge of white wine making and red wine making respectively.
Bright and fresh on the nose, lemongrass, apples and some herbs on the palate. High acidity, making it tart. Clean finish, refreshing.
Fresh, light fruity flavor but not overly fruity. Maybe the acid mellows out the fruit? I would buy again. Not my favorite but not bad either. Doesn't leave a horrible after-taste which is nice when you just want to have a casual glass of wine.
