"An excellent value Chardonnay that should cost more. Patianna’s certified organic estate vineyards produce a rich wine with a ton of flavor and acidity. Sur lie ageing and a bit of oak create a round lush mouth-feel without adding a stick of butter. Crisp flavors of apple, pear, peach, tropical fruit and vanilla."
“A rich, fruity Chardonnay with lots of flavor and bright, mouthwatering acidity. Made sur lie, but with no oak, it has yeasty notes accenting pineapples, Asian pears, green apples, hnoneysuckle, cinnamon and vanilla.” Steve Heimoff, February 2010
“Attractive, floral, nectarine and white peach aroma. Medium-full body; soft, fleshy, smoky, citrus and tropical fruit flavors with a creamy mouthfeel, lingering aftertaste.” Nick Ponomareff, March 2010
