Editorial Reviews for Saintsbury Chardonnay Carneros Unfiltered
Lemony fruit and lightly buttery, toasty oak greet the nose. On entry this shows big acids that offer up a great spine on which to drape the lightly buttery, creamy citrus, peach, and pear fruits. The wine is spiced yet fresh with a nice middle of the road style and weight. It finishes a bit short and with a bit of sticky wood on the finale but is a fine, typical Chardonnay. Its roundness might make it work well with moderately spicy south American dishes. Find some fish tacos! 87pts
Nose of citrus blossom and a whiff of honey. Attractive and fresh style that is crisp and nice. Great flavor and good acid profile. No noticeable oak on the palate to me. Nice! 91 pts. 1/19/13
Citrus zest, pear and vanilla
Caramel apple and vanilla sorbet on the nose. Crushed vanilla bean flavors. Nice acidic attack, with a hint of mustiness, not unpleasant. Malolactic fermentation giving the wine red apple flavors. Buttery finish
Crisp with just the perfect amount of oak. Very nice and mineral with a real lemony finish (striking acidity) - a very fresh California chardonnay.
very nice bright chard, long finish, mild effervescence up front...great for the price, my new go to chard

2010 Saintsbury Chardonnay - USA - Region: California - Apellation: Carneros - Chardonnay - 750 ml
Saintsbury Chardonnay Carneros 2008 and all other wine from Saintsbury are available for immediate delivery and discounted prices from CheaperCigars.com. We also carry wide variety of wine from USA and across the globe.
Well focused, with a snappy edge to the peach, pear and apple flavors. Clean and refreshing, it drinks well now through 2000.
Unfiltered since the 1993 vintage, the Saintsbury Carneros Chardonnay has had none of the richness or lush fruit stripped from it. Incredibly toasty, with heady vanilla and oak notes on the nose. Thick and smooth on the palate, with generous amounts of butter and caramel, highlighted with dollops of bananas and cream. Quite a lengthy finish mdash; an excellent buy at this price.
This wine is fermented in French oak barrels and aged sur lie for about eight months. Usually twenty to thirty percent of these barrels are new; the balance have been used once and twice before. During the aging process, the barrels are stirred (batonnâge) to increase yeast contact for added richness. The wine also completes malolactic fermentation in the barrel, which adds roundness to the mouthfeel and complexity to the aroma. Finally, our Carneros Chardonnay has been bottled without filtration since 1993 when, after experimentation, we concluded that unfiltered Chardonnay delivers a more vibrant fruit character and a richer mouthfeel. We are now bottling this Chardonnay with a screwcap-no corkscrew/wine key required-just your bare hands for easy access. - Winery ** Only 12 in Stock **
The Chardonnay unites brilliant flavors with just the right structure and palate-feel. The flavors are classic citrus and pear - concentrated and focused nicely in the mid-palate. It has terrific length, is fully flavored, and finishes crisply.
