Melville Chardonnay Estate Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay Wine 2007

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

( 30) Bright gold. Ripe melon and pit fruits on the nose. Brighter orange and Meyer lemon on the palate which features a fleshy texture and a slow-building note of floral honey. The citrus notes gain strength on the clean juicy impressively persistent finish. 90 points Stephen Tanzers IWC.

This wine is a stunner! A very deep golden straw color. On the nose very complex notes of granny smith apples nectarines hazelnut and crushed rocks. After taking my first sip I was inundated by the striking minerality bright acidity and the balance of the wine. There are hints of lemon peel mandarin oranges and a touch of new oak. This is a teriffic example of well made California Chardonnay. John Sweeney.
