2009 Chamisal Vineyards Stainless Chardonnay, Unoaked, Central Coast CA $13 – Rating 88
Note: We previously gave this wine a poor rating… but it appears we had a bad bottle… Glad we bought 2.
A full-flavored unoaked/non-malolactic Chardonnay. Beautiful flavors of tropical fruits, ripe pineapple, melon, citrus with a rich mouth-feel with hints of honeycomb on the finish. The clean flavors will appeal to fans of “naked Chardonnays” while the full fruit expression is big enough to satisfy an oak leaning palate.
