Winemaker's Notes

Intense, bright golden yellow, this Chardonnay is complex with delicate notes of honey and ripe tropical fruits that recall banana, pineapple, and passion fruit, along with notes of toast and vanilla. On the palate, it is crisp and refreshing with good balance and a long and pleasing finish.

Drink with sauced full-bodied fish, shellfish, grilled rabbit, white meats, and ripe cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Reserva Chardonnay is whole bunch pressed and raised on its lees for eight months in French and American oak. It has a fresh, crisp bouquet with lime flower and lemon peel scents, a touch of vanilla pod in the background. The palate offers ripe green apple and mango on the entry. The acidity is crisp and the finish, harmonious and long, with just the right amount of nuanced oak on the finish. This is a well made Chardonnay at a great price."
