Hints of orange blossom and spice add interest to the enticing aromas; the creamy, lingering finish is laced with warm oak tones. The wines vibrant Chardonnay flavors come from grapes grown primarily in the Lodi American Viticultural Area (AVA) surrounding our winery.

Editorial Reviews for Woodbridge Lodi California Select Vineyard Series Chardonnay
Pineapple, vanilla crème and lemon curd great the nose with hints of lemongrass and sawdust adding detail. This is a bit rich on entry with some really metallic flavors early on the palate as the acids try to establish themselves. If it wasn’t for the metal this would be remarkably neutral. Tastes like tin foil. Some fruit reappears on the finish. 75pts
Light, crisp, German style but sweeter than most Rieslings. This one really fun with a variety of cheeses. The flavor keeps changing with each type of cheese. A variety of apples goes well also. Very refreshing.
A crisp, every day Chardonnay.
This wine has no maturity and a flat acidic taste. It stands a poor comparison to the 2009 vintage, the bouquet of which had a maturity that belied the age and price range of the label.

With aromas of baked apples and lemon curd, this crowd pleaser offers hints of baking spice flavor and a slightly sweet finish.
Good price for an everyday wine with real Chardonnay character. Shows ripe pineapple and pear flavors, enriched with sweet oak-like notes of smoke, caramel and butterscotch.
This shows real varietal character with spicy peaches-and-cream flavors and a nice vein of smoky oak, and a honeyed, crisp finish.
Crisp and simple. A light wine showing bright, citrusy fruit.
Vibrant notes of floral, tropical fruit, pear, citrus and spice weave through this wine; soft, spicy nuances linger on the finish.
Light, bright and fresh chardonnay fruit in a wine that continues to offer fine value in its category.
Helles Gelb, fruchtiges, dezent süsses Bouquet, Mirabellentöne. Saftiger Gaumen, frische Säure, feine Butternote im Extrakt mit leicht exotischem Fruchttouch.
