Apple, pear, nice fruit and oak in the nose with some butter and toast. White fruit on the palate, more apple than pear, with a good alkaline mineral quality. Fatter and moderately oaky on the finish.
Complex apple aroma- red, gold, baked, even a little green. Notes of honey & oak also in the nose. Hints of sweetness on the palate, balanced with acidity and nice oak.
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Chalk Chardonnay
A perfect example of Sonoma Chardonnay, full of bright peach fruit, crisp, lively and smooth. Hard to believe that one can still find good Sonoma Chard at this price!
Wine Tasting NotesThe mouth is fresh and crisp, very lively, with loads of apple and citrus turning very fast to the richer, deeper fruit nuances of melon and peach. The nose is extremely complex due to the length of the fermentation that allows all the elements to blend harmoniously to create the unique style of Chardonnay.
