Creamy, yeasty nose over crisp green apple and citrus. On the palate, it has very strong citrus flavors like tangerine, etc. Really juicy with a strong fruit core. Great acidity throughout. This is a bigger, crisp, more French style chardonnay from Landmark. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011

Yellow-gold. Orange peel, guava and gingery spices on the nose, with honey and smoky lees qualities adding complexity. Nicely concentrated and energetic as well, with bracing acidity adding cut to the wines rich tropical and pit fruit flavors. Becom... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2008 Landmark Chardonnay Lorenzo Vineyard 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit in ’08 was of classic morphology, most of the clusters were less than four inches in length and berry size was tiny, a formula for distinctive chardonnay. Following whole cluster pressing and settling of the juice overnight, the wine fermented in barrel with native yeasts and underwent complete malolactic fermentation as well. Lees stirring and aging sur lie for 14 months has produced a wine of well-integrated fruit and oak flavors.

Tasting Notes:

The wine shows a beautiful golden yellow color with distinctive honey and pear fruit expression. There is a very concentrated core of fruit on the palate with underlying minerality and good acid structure. The wine has the capacity to age gracefully for many years to come.
