I really like this wine for the balance. It is nice fruit of apple and tropical notes typical of the climate. It demonstrates a restrained use of oak but you can tell it is there and the malo doesn't leave it feeling flabby....in fact there is some nice acidity. This is a good example of when medium isn't bad. With Chardonnay, for me, more isn't always better.

Unimpressive nose of apple and straw. Nice balance of apple,pear,citrus and hint of oak followed by a crisp finish. A very nice wine with smoked salmon, crackers & cheese, or just by itself.

Zesty acidity keeps the flavors fresh and lively, with pretty citrus, tangerine, pippin apple and creamy oak. Turns complex, and is a wonderful value at this price. New from Gallo. Drink now through 2005.

Frei Brothers Reserve wines possess a fruit-forward character with intense aromas and flavors that reflect the land and the climate that created the grapes. The 2000 Chardonnay is a medium-bodied wine with a silky mouthfeel and complex varietal characters of pear, peach and apple balanced with a subtle overlay of oak.

Serves up lots of ripe, rich, complex fruit, with fig, pear, nectarine and apple flavors that are focused and flavorful. Drink now.

The delicious, honeyed 2008 Chardonnay offers subtle new oak aromas interwoven with tropical fruit, poached pear, and citrus oil characteristics. It should drink nicely for 2ndash;3 years or longer.

Big and intense with a soft mouthfeel and bold flavors of pear, peach and apple, balanced by subtly integrated oak. Potent, but not overdone.

Winemaker's Notes:

Flavors of green apple, orange zest, and apple pie, which are complemented by buttery and toasty notes. Nutty and rich, the wine finishes with a silky, full mouthfeel.
