Our 2008 Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay displays fruit-forward citrus aromas, accented by hints of mineral and brown spice. On the palate, it is richly textured with honey, fig, stone fruit, spice and minerals.
A great rich and buttery chardonnay! Would buy again!
Ubiquitous as Chardonnays may seem, this particular Byron Chard. stands out on its own. Not in the least bit overly acidic or bitter, it has a toasty, buttery taste with subtle hints of citrus, cream, and minerals as its being enjoyed. I paired this wine with a mayo and celery based chicken salad, sour cream and cheddar noodles, and some creamy havarti cheese w/ caraway. Definitely a smooth, rich, and pleasant Chardonnay that I'll buy again.
Terrific Chardonnay. I found it crisp with a warm feeling. I have much to learn about wine tasting, but I was able to experience distinct flavors.
