Maldonado Chardonnay Napa Valley Los Olivos Vineyard 2005
Since the debut of Maldonado Chardonnay, comparisons with the amazing California Chardonnays of Kistler, Marcassin and Peter Michael have become so commonplace that it's only a short matter of time before Maldonado is on every great restaurant's wine list. For everyone who enjoys Chardonnay or intriguing whites, this is a serious must drink. It also belongs on the must drink lists of those discriminating old-world disciples who will only drink white Burgundy. I've been a fan of this wine for several years, it was love at first taste. I absolutely recommend the wine. One taste and you will agree that Maldonado Chardonnay is correct, expressive and delicious. Perfect.
External Reviews for Maldonado Chardonnay Napa Valley Los Olivos Vineyard
One of the two best Chardonnay's in the Angel's Share portfolio, this Moldinado is 1/3rd the price of the renowned Napa Valley Kongsgaard Chardonnay: immensely dense, lush tropical fruit is balanced by intense citrus with a minerality which one usually finds only in excellent white Burgundies. Superb quality; outstanding value!
