Saintsbury Chardonnay Unfiltered Carneros 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Saintsbury:
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.

Lots of lemony citrus on the nose. Incredibly refreshing on the palate. Again, lots of lemon citrus acid. No sign of butter or vanilla from oak or ML. Excellent summer sipping wine, but also a good match for tonight's grilled Ahi Tuna with Citrus/Shallot sauce. US$15.36 at Total Wine.

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

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.

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 2 in Stock **
