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.
"There’s a bit of oak here, but not too much, giving a smoky, buttered toast richness to the orange, lime and pineapple fruit. It’s a rich, flashy Chardonnay, with crisp acidity and a clean, spicy finish."
