Meridian Vineyards Chardonnay California 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Exotic aromas mingle pleasingly in this wine and include notes of fresh cut flowers, lychee, vanilla and nutmeg. A dash of toasted almond brings about an intriguing mid-note. This is not a shy Chardonnay. On the palate expect flavors of pineapple, lime and grapefruit essence with a touch of oak, followed by a lengthy finish.

Clear bright straw, aromas of pineapples and tropical fruits, flavors of yellow apple and lime with good acidity. Clean and not over textured.

    Oak-ey. Buttery. Boring.

    Nice warmth, medium-bodied. Vanilla notes on nose. There's also a fresh fruitiness that opens up throughout the glass. Overall, it wouldn't be my first choice for a white wine, but it's simple, easy drinking.

    Here's a smartly styled coastal chardonnay. It has the briskness of a cool Pacific breeze on a sand dune and lasting green pear flavor. Clean and ready to chill.

    Smooth, silky and distinctive, with nectarine, grapefruit and mineral flavors, plus a touch of earthiness on the finish. Ready now.

    Intense and concentrated, showing a wide spectrum of tropical fruit, toasty oak and earth flavors that linger. May develop more complexity with time in the bottle. Drink now through 1995.

    It's rich in Chardonnay character, with tropical fruit, peach, pear and oak flavors set in a richly creamy, honeyed texture that's highlighted by brisk, South Coast acidity.

    Lightly aromatic, with floral, citrusy and fruity scents, but on the palate the pure fruit flavors are ripe and vivid, with a nice zing to them, finishing with a dash of grapefruit and green apple. Drink now.

    Meridian continues to work its magic with Chardonnay, highlighting the rich fruit of Santa Barbara. Lemon yellow in color, medium-bodied and ripe with pear, toast, and lemon flavors, the wine's flavor extract comes complete with a fair amount of sweetness. If you like big, lush Chardonnay at a good price, buy it by the case. It's sure to be a big hit around the holiday dinner table.

    Notes of apple blossom and vanilla mingle pleasingly on the nose along with red apple, fresh pear and vanilla. Pineapple and cantaloupe are evident on the palate with a subtle hint of shortbread. This well-balanced California Chardonnay finishes with a nice acidity that is perfect on its own or paired with a variety of food.
