Vine Cliff Chardonnay Proprieters Reserve White 2003

Member Review by LennThompson:

Medium gold in the glass. The nose is reminiscent of buttered toffee and caramel corn, with only the most subtle hints of apple and citrus beneath. Medium-to-full bodied, it’s not as elegant or fruit-forward as previous vintages and the oak influence is more obvious. Still, there is just enough fruit for balance and subtle acidity to keep it from being weighty on the palate.

This small production Chardonnay is reminiscent of white Burgundy. It is estate grown and sees French oak for 11 months. A rich, full, creamy mouth feel unfolds to layers of citrus, honeysuckle, and toasted almonds. Delicious.
