Jekel Vineyards Gravelstone Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes A melange of tropical fruit flavors brim from this concentrated wine: lemon, Mandarin orange, pineapple and mango. Subtle vanilla and spice nuances enhance the lush flavors, with a beam of acidity to keep the finish lively and long. Chicken, shellfish and especially lobster are perfect pairings, but so too are pork, veal and seafood. Expansive lemon and pineapple flavors enrich your chicken and shellfish dishes.

Jekel:
Jekel Vineyards, founded in 1972, is recognized as one of the early pioneers in crafting world-class wines from Monterey County. Since our first vintage in 1978, we have built an international following for our critically acclaimed, premium Rieslings, Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Bordeaux blends. Jekel Vineyards...the real meaning of Monterey. Subtle and refined flavors crafted from the heart of the Monterey Appellation.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. There may not be a great deal of richness or range to be had here, and it does not go very far in its expression of Chardonnay fruit, but this smaller-scaled wine is nicely balanced and as clean as can be. It makes no pretense to complexity, but then neither does its price-and, on the whole, it is decently priceworthy.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

"The aromas of apricot



Tasting Notes:

Apricot, pear and melon aromas are highlighted with just a touch of jasmine and spice; full bodied on the palate; ripe core fruit flavors with just the right amount of sweet oak on the palate.
