USA — California • $26.95 • 89/100

This Chardonnay is from the Russian River region of Sonoma County, and reflects the slightly cooler environment. Light smoky and leesy notes underpin ripe fruit on the nose, suggesting creamy lemon curd, ripe yellow apples, melon and pineapple, with vanilla and a hint of cedary resin. The wine is dry, with elevated alcohol that adds body and richness rather than heat, and enough acidity to provide balance and life. The fruit is rich and ripe on the palate, and the finish dries and slims down enough to offer a note of stony minerality. A balanced version of California Chardonnay, and one of the best values in that genre. • Tasted 2017-03-04 • LCBO id#275552 • Find it at your nearest LCBOMARK ANTHONY BRANDS (Agent)
