Matanzas Creek Winery Chardonnay Sonoma County 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :A top offering, the 2005 Chardonnay is a 23,500-case wine that enjoyed 95% malolactic fermentation as well as eight months in French oak (only 32% new). Smoke, lemon oil, white currant, white peach, hazelnut, and orange rind aromas jump from the glass of this 2005. It displays terrific fruit and purity, but little evidence of wood.

Our vineyards live in harmony with their surroundings with only a portion of the land planted to vine. The rest is given over to an eclectic blend of native grasses, delicate olive trees, exotic perennials and our famed lavender fields - an inspiriting setting from which the story of our wines takes shape.

Nice light straw color. Nose of pears with a floral component. Flavors of pear, citrus adding a bit of zing, and a touch of oak, but definitely no "Oak Monster". A tad sweet on the finish, with some of the floral component returning. Tasty, but unremarkable. 88 points.
