Parducci Small Lot Blend Chardonnay 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Light on the nose with a gentle, layered nose of wood spice, leesy floral tones and some bright pear and yellow cherry fruit. Light-bodied, fresh and vibrant with lovely balance between the fruit and the judicious use of oak. This has suggestions of acidity in the mouth but is still in an obviously soft style that showcases the lightly sweet orchard fruit topped with hints of lemon pith. The finish is a touch short but still fairly fresh with sneaky length. Neither intense nor complex but easy to enjoy. 85pts

Nice middle of the road chardonnay from Mendocino. Not much (if any) oak, nice light citrus flavor with a touch of the stone fruit on the back end. Not overly complex but a real nice quaff for the price.

Rich and round without being over- or under-oaked. Nice banana and nutmeg flavors that evolve into a creamy finish. Perfect Tuesday wine.

Selected, individually-vinified small lots of premium Chardonnay are blended to create a wine of bold, lively character and balanced flavors of crisp apple, pear and tropical fruits. A very good wine at a reasonable price. Pair with salmon, chicken and white-sauced pastas.

A lush, crisp Chardonnay from a cool-ish vintage that tastes most specifically of green apple with a tropical twist on the finish.
