Foxglove Chardonnay Rmp 90 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Advocate Review Rated 90 This terrific portfolio of values is led by Foxglove's remarkable 2009 Chardonnay, a non-oaked, stainless steel-fermented and aged white that sees no malolactic fermentation. Moreover, there are 30,000 cases of this beauty, a blend of two-thirds Santa Barbara County fruit and the rest from Paso Robles and further north in Monterey. It exhibits crisp honeyed lemon, citrus, poached pear, and honeysuckle notes intermixed with a hint of pineapple. However, it is the zesty acidity, stunning purity, and delightful balance this naked Chardonnay possesses that make it so appealing. Enjoy it over the next year. Wine Tasting Notes Fresh and lively with aromatic notes of tropical fruit and pear, in a fleshy, medium bodied style, with obvious minerality and precision.

Surprisingly authentic- none of that over-oaked butterball California stuff here. This is wine that spells relief- just a solid, good old fashioned white wine that smells interesting, feels nice in the mouth, and tastes good. And the price is right.I am all for it.

Very refined. Delicate. More wine-y than fruity, but still complex. Surprisingly drinkable for the high ABV.

Fresh and lively with aromatic notes of tropical fruit and pear, in a fleshy, medium bodied style, with obvious minerality and precision. Bright acidity makes this Chardonnay a good choice for the dinner table.

Made by Bob Varner, one of Californiarsquo;s Chardonnay mavens, this wine showcases the Edna Valley with its intense citrus, and tropical fruit profile, creamy richness, and underlying crispness that somehow keeps this substantial white balanced and refreshing.

The 18,000 cases of 2006 Fox Glove Chardonnay should not last long in the marketplace. All tank-fermented and lee-stirred with no malolactic, this is outrageously delicious Chardonnay showing plenty of white currant, pineapple, and tangerine skin notes, with gorgeous fruit purity, medium body, crisp aciditiy, and oodles of naked varietal fruit that is surprisingly complex and rich with great zestiness. Drink it over the next 12ndash;18 months.

Bright and crisp with notes of melon, banana and citrus. Aged in stainless steel for a more acidic, fruit-driven style - and a perfect alternative to oaky, buttery Chardonnay.
