Meridian Vineyards Chardonnay Edna Valley Reserve Selection 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting 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.

Toasty oak, carmel, vanilla and apple come through in this beautifully rounded Chardonnay from Meridian. Fantastic complexity and quality at a value price. Not to be missed.

One of the best values in Chardonnay - from anywhere. This wine follows up on previous meridian successes. With lots of citrus and tropical fruit in both the nose and mouth, it maintains its balance and ends on a warm and toasty note. If you can find a better Chardonnay for the price, buy it; but you probably won't.

Another solid effort from Meridian. Tight and focused, with a rich core of spicy pear, honey and earth shadings framed by toasty, buttery oak notes. It all adds up to a pleasing mouthful of Chardonnay. Drink now to 1995.

Lots to admire in this ripe, elegant pear, apple and honeyed wine. Picks up light toasty oak on the finish. An excellent value. Drink now through 2004.

Meridian strikes again with this spiffy Chard packed with well-ripened tropical fruits and spices, and a solid dose of smoky oak. It's clean, crisp and intense, with a honeyed texture and long finish.

Always a dependable producer, Meridian has crafted another fine and affordable Chardonnay. Lovely tropical-fruit aromas, a medium to full mouthfeel, a palate of ripe Santa Barbara fruit, and the judicious use of oak make this a fine value.

The 1998 Chardonnay Santa Barbara is tropical fruit-dominated, tart, perfumed, uncomplicated but savory. It should be consumed over the next 12-24 months. Meridian has consistently maintained a fair pricing policy, so while this effort may not be a super-star, it represents well-made wines selling at reasonable prices. Readers take note.
