The 2011 RouteStock Chardonnay has an attractive pale straw color with delicate golden hues. The aroma is a cacophony of complex layers including tropical fruits, mango and yellow peach over delightful notes of butter, brioche and roasted nuts. The palate is rich and full with flavors of taffy and nuts and a soft, creamy, yet elegant finish.
"Two excellent wines from winemaker Wayne Donaldson include the 2011 Chardonnay Route 121 (hence the Route 121 moniker)...Displaying a Chablis-like light yellow/gold color, it offers fresh lemon zest, honeysuckle, tangerine and wet rock-like notes with a slight floral undertone. Medium-weight, elegant, pure and well-balanced."
The Wine Advocate
"Smooth, clean and fresh with bright white flowers and peach; soft minerals, good acid structure and nice length."
