Chardonnay, Signature Selection
Wine Review Online-Marguerite Thomas
90 pts. WineReviewOnLine.com, Marguerite Thomas, December 1, 2020. “This iconic Dry Creek Chardonnay is notably aromatic and has an appealing glossy texture. Eighty-five percent of the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks with the rest aged in American oak barrels for eight months. Reasonably priced, relatively low in alcohol (13.5%) and boasting a convenient screw-cap closure, this is a good white wine choice for casual suppers. Try it with a cheese omelet, a tuna sandwich, or vegetarian carbonara.”
90 Points: “A youthful array of fresh pear and lemon aromas lead to a palate that has spiced-pear focus and a smooth, flavorful finish. Drink now.” printable
