For a bargain chardonnay, I'd have ranked it very high blind! A nice crisp, fresh tropical fruit salad is nicely laced with hints of oak which add a toasted nutty, creamy character to it. At least that's what I got from it. If you see it, pick up a bottle!


Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2008 Sonoma Junction Chardonnay displays an array of fruit, floral and spice notes from grapes grown in four distinct regions of Sonoma County. The aromas and flavors are filled with lush pear, melon, citrus and peach, with a perfumed hint of honeysuckle. Barrel aging added delicate oak notes of autumn spice, vanilla and hazelnut that warm the aromas and carry through to the vibrant, fruity finish. Enjoy this beautifully balanced wine by sipping it over conversation or pairing it with a broad array of foods, such as turkey salad with creamy avocado dressing, chicken roasted with rosemary, shrimp with angel hair pasta or grilled halibut. For a balance of opulent complexity and pure fruit expression, winemaker Carol Wilson fermented half of the juice in small oak barrels and half in stainless steel tanks. Thirty percent of the wine completed malolactic fermentation to soften acidity, while sur lie aging (on the yeast) in barrel and tank enhanced the wine’s rich, silky textur
