Sonoma Coast Vineyards Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Gold Ridge Hills 2010
With a diverse range of aromatics, it's the citrus and tropical fruit that stand out. Hints of fresh green apple linger as it opens. The toast and spice components are in the early stages of reaching full integration. There are emerging elements of a creme brulee like richness on the palate surrounded by a silky acid matrix. It is showing zesty lemon and fresh pear with a center core of tropical white fruit and sweet tangerine. The aging potential for this wine should be exceptional given the bright acidity and complex fruit profile. This will age nicely over the next 3-5 years.
