Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay 2010 has aromas of pear, fig, fuji apple and orange blossom. It has a great, rich entry, vibrant acidity, and a long tangy finish.

Saintsbury Carneros Chardonnay has been bottled without filtration since 1993 when, after experimentation, the winery concluded that unfiltered Chardonnay delivers a more vibrant fruit character and a richer mouthfeel.

About Saintsbury:

Saintsbury specializes in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay is fermented and aged in barrels coopered in Burgundy. Three styles of Pinot Noir are produced: "Garnet" is a fresh, lively wine full of cherry and raspberry fruit; the wine simply called Carneros Pinot Noir is a more classic rendition; and the Reserve Pinot Noir is the richest and most fully flavored of the vintage.
