Rodney Strong Chardonnay Sonoma County 2012
Editorial Reviews for Rodney Strong Chardonnay Sonoma County
Full and creamy lemon aromas are pronounced and joined by green apple and butter. Dried apricot flavors on the palate match with the green apple, and there's plenty of cream here for lovers of buttery Chardonnay. Classic and well made. 88 pts
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Chardonnay Sonoma County
Bright lemon and apple aromas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity, and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spice and refreshing acidity will have you coming back for another glass.
We barrel fermented 60% of this wine and aged that portion in barrel for six months, offering the wine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the remainder to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. Bright lemon and apple aromas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity, and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spice and refreshing acidity will have you coming back for another glass. Enjoy this lively Chardonnay now and over the next couple of years.
This wine exhibits all the positive attributes of barrel fermentation — a fullness of aroma, creamy texture and layers of complexity not often found at this price point. While there’s a taste of richness the wine actually drinks lean, an exploration of Gravenstein apple and pear between swipes of lemon curd on toast.
