Topel Chardonnay Classique Mendocino 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Aromatically tight and narrow with a decidedly lemon oil nose that has a slightly floral almost lemon verbena top note. Tense in the mouth with almost a little Chablis character with a touch of stones on the midpalate contrasted against the core of fresh pineapple and lime fruit. There’s a touch of autolytic character on the back end followed by a long finish with excellent tension though perhaps a touch evolved with a hint of wood tannin and toast on the finale. 92pts

Topel Winery and its Hidden Vineyard are perched on the east side of Duncan Peak — 1400 feet above the Sanel Valley floor and just south of Hopland in southern Mendocino County.

Adhering to organic and biodynamic agriculture practices, the Topels tend the vines year-round, coaxing each to produce moderate grape yields with intense flavors. Read less
