St. Supéry Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Moscato brings a purity of stone fruit, peach blossoms and pear to the aroma that is over whelming. On the palate there is a smooth texture, juicy acidity with flavors of peach and pear. It finishes with a hint of floral that goes on and on.

Light on the nose with hints of toasted nuts, cocoa, tobacco, mint and vanilla over red currant and plum fruit. This shows off a lovely herbal perfume on entry followed by a nice red currant, raspberry and plum skin mid-palate that’s nicely framed with well-judged oak notes. There's actually quite a bit of peppery spice here on the palate, with layered oak flavors that are well balanced by the fruit, fruit that remains fresh and transparent in the mouth. The oak turns a touch bitter for a moment on the finish, then the fruit returns with a hint of bacon fat and persistent earthy spice. Lean, fresh and elegant, this is balanced for the cellar but already very attractive with a fairly light-handed winemaking style. 93pts

aromas of apples, melon, and pear, some citrus notes on the palate combined with candied apples, tiny hints of vanilla with a smooth mouthfeel

Nice dessert wine. Lychee and citrus nose. Nice acid with a touch of lemon, light body & sweetness and nice finish. Would be good for summer time or spicy food.

Oak free chardonnay with good acid and nice crispness. Citrus notes and nice balance.

Lighter in colour than estate and lighter aromas. Still has that grapefruit character but is creamier in texture and has lychee notes.

Illustrates with tremendous hues of purples and reds. Aromas of blackberry and black plum integrate with tight smoky oak, a note of anise and dark molassas. Flavors of blackberry and cassis follow with a dusty sense of terroir, bright vanillin oak and a structured espresso finish.

Like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach, apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.
