Bright and lively, this medium-bodied Chardonnay opens with pleasing stone fruit, vanilla and floral spice aromas. On the palate, the wine is well-structured and perfectly-balanced. The wine offers an intriguing wet stone minerality along with hints of sweet pineapple and lemon that lead to notes of nectarine on the finish.
"The 2007 Chardonnay Belle Terre Vineyard was put through full malolactic fermentation, making it the most showy, flamboyant wine of this quartet. It also possesses impressive minerality as well as attractive notes of apricots, tropical fruits, mangoes, honeysuckle, and a subtle touch of hazelnuts. This delicious, medium to full-bodied 2007 should drink well for 2-4 years. "
The Wine Advocate
"A subtle, delicate style, showing medium-bodied ripe apple and pear fruit shaded by a touch of citrus, followed by a clean, lingering finish. Drink now through 2012. 5,867 cases made."
