Melville Vineyards and Winery Chardonnay Estate Verna's Santa Barbara County 2011

External Review:

Bright gold. Subtle aromas of lemon, melon, tarragon and white flowers. Dense and supple on entry, then silky but firm in the middle, with reticent but complex honeydew and orange flavors and a hint of herbs. Finishes with very good length and a hint... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2009 Melville Chardonnay Estate Verna's 750ml

Bright yellow. Very fresh aromas and flavors of lime, pear, powdered stone, anise and saffron. Deep, sappy and bracing, combining excellent density and fine-grained texture with superb cut. Impressively pure on the incisive finish, which really grips... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2009 Melville Chardonnay Estate Verna's 750ml
