External Reviews for Trace Wines Chardonnay
Fruit and pear aromas are complemented by hints of oak and vanilla. This medium-bodied to full-bodied white has ripe fruit flavors, crisp high acid in the mouth, and a rich lingering finish.
The dryness and minerality of this wine, combined with its clean, brisk elegance, make it a very nice partner for shellfish. The flavors are lemons, limes, and ripe, crisp white peaches.
Creamy and tartly acidic, with sour pineapple candy, pear, buttered popcorn and vanilla flavors. Made in a popular style that will appeal to fans of oaky Chards.
The barrel component adds a toasty complexity to complement the fruit and pear aromas on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, this Chardonnay has ripe fruit flavors, crisp, high acid in the mouth and a rich, lingering finish.
Rich and flavorful, with a lovely range of ripe pear, honey, fig and apricot, plus pretty touches of vanilla and butterscotch. Very good quality, very nice price. Drink now through 2006.
Ginger, orange peel and Asian spices give this a tea-like flavor. The texture is unctous, the finish toasty and brown, sweet enough for a Vietnamese fish curry.
Fifty percent of the 1999 Chardonnay Sonoma is fermented in American oak. It possesses a Macirc;connais-like character that reveals subdued oak and prominent fruit (citrus and other tropical fruit), medium body, and a clean, refreshing finish.
The majority of the Chardonnay in this blend is grown in the Russian River Valley appellation. The marine influence of early morning fog off the Pacific Ocean and warm afternoons, slowly ripen the Chardonay grown here, limiting the risk of over ripeness. The balance of the Chardonnay for this blend is carefully selected from vineyards in Sonoma Valley and the Carneros region. Night harvesting allows the preservation of the Chardonay’s delicate flavors, aromas and acidity. The grapes are then 100% whole cluster pressed and fermented in different lots, then barrel aged for six months in both French and American oak barrels prior to blending. The barrels are lees stirred by hand during aging to achieve a rich, lush mouthfeel. The wine then undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation.
This ripe, lush, direct Chardonnay is a classic Sonoma expression of the grape, with overt tropical fruit and apple flavors, rich toasty oak notes and a crisp, supple finish.
