Winemaker's Notes

This wine has nice minerality and citrus fruit in the nose, as well as golden apple and pink grapefruit nuances, due to the cool vintage and the extended hang time. Sebastiani used a lighter oak regime than in the past in order to showcase its beautiful elegance and silkiness.

The bright acidity keeps the fruit and texture nicely in balance, and the finish is laced with vanilla and praline flavors. For those who have grown tired of fat, oaky California Chardonnays, here is a refreshing departure from that style.

Critical Acclaim

"This nicely balanced and carefully crafted wine conveys neither head-turning richness nor compelling complexity, but it gets it right in terms of constant, very well-defined varietal fruit and is a complete and genuinely appealing drink. It polished on the palate and brightened by a welcome bit of fruity acidity, and it is nothing short of an out and out bargain at the price. GOOD VALUE"
