A touch of toast and light wood spice greets the nose over sweet yellow berried fruit. The mouthfeel is polished and soft with light notes of caramel and wood spice accented the core of sweet roasted peaches accented with a hint of white pepper. the finish is clean as a bell with a fine mineral vein if just a tad short. 89pts

A fine young estate Chardonnay from these growers-turned-producers in the heart of the valley. Displays clean and pure apple and peach flavors, and enough oak to season with vanilla and woody spices. Balanced and pretty, and a good match for salmon or crab.

Kunde's winemaker tasting notes liken their estate Chardonnay to a cinnamon bun, which threw me off at first. Upon further reflection, however, I started to think, "well, I guess it is." This wine is rich and creamy, with yeasty bread dough aromas and distinct cinnamon notes, and peeking out beneath the buttery oak are crisp apple, guava and banana flavors. The smooth and mellow finish is substantial and lingering, making the Kunde a definite winner in the $10 California Chardonnay category!

Here's a big, ripe, creamy, oaky Chardonnay. The oak stars, contributing flamboyant vanilla, char and woody spices, but there's plenty of fruit flavor ranging from apples and peaches all the way to papayas.

A lively style, with fresh floral, peach and nectarine flavors that finish with a touch of citrus. Little in the way of oak. Drink now.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Estate Chardonnay Nu is a fresh, tropical vacation in a bottle. Clean and crisp with the aromas of ripe peaches and pears. This wine is made up of select Chardonnay blocks that emphasize floral and citrus flavors and an earlier harvest contributes to the lightness and mineral texture. No oak aging has brought out the pure, fresh expression of the Chardonnay grape.

Bright, lively and refreshing, with zesty pear, nutmeg, citrus and tangerine notes. Drink now through 2004.
