Raymond R Collection Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 R Collection Chardonnay is a beautifully crisp Chardonnay primarily fermented in stainless steel tanks, which provides a nice alternative to the heavier oaked Chardonnays. The R Collection Chardonnay opens with notes of fragrant floral perfume and ripe tropical fruit. On the palate, juicy peaches and dried apricots mingle with the bright flavors of grapefruit and the delicate essence of lemongrass. This medium-bodied Chardonnay is well balanced, with a kiss of oak rounding out the fresh acidity of the fruit, and unfolding into a smooth, long-lasting finish." --Winemaker's notes

Creamy flavors of citrus (pineapple, lemon, guava), apple and crisp pear balanced by a touch of vanilla oak. Beautifully balanced with a smooth finish. 92 points
