2011 Bonterra Vineyards Chardonnay, Mendocino County, CA, $14 (S) – Rating 91

From 100% organically grown grapes. 70% of the wine is fermented in oak with the balance in stainless steel, creating a combination of depth and crispness. Aromas abound of ripe pineapple with notes of butterscotch. Clean flavors include red apple and buttery caramel with notes of Meyer lemon. Well balanced acidity with just a hint of sweetness. A long finish of red apple and intriguing minerality. Buy This Wine
