Foley Estate Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard 2005
Notes on the Foley Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills 2005 : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 90 POINTS The 2005 Chardonnay Rancho Santa Rosa exhibits restrained tropical fruits intermixed with a subtle peach character. There is an attractive underpinning of tart acidity, a hint of oak, and a complex personality. It should age well for 2-4 years.

Replete with crisp acidity the wine is fruit driven and boasts a lush, creamy texture in the mouth. FOLEY CHARDONNAY SANTA RITA HILLS 2005

Wine Tasting NotesGolden in color, the wine is fruit-driven with aromas of pear, grapefruit, melon, butterscotch and mineral.
Opens with powerful lemon drop, lemon peel and toast aromas that turn firm and minerally in the mouth, almost hard, with a steely, gun-flint edge to the lemon custard flavors. With very high acidity, this polished Chard finishes dry and classy.
Intense and complex, with concentrated pear, apple, earth and nutmeg flavors that expand and gain velocity on the palate. Drink now through 2010.
