Los Carneros is one of the most prestigious Chardonnay growing areas in California, and this wine demonstrates why. Bright and balanced, it's simply delicious!
The 2015 Vine Cliff Proprietress Reserve Chardonnay has an intense aroma that is filled with notes of preserved lemon, baked apple, and hints of honey suckle. Toasted almond, and vanilla add dimension. On the palate, lemon cream, toasted brioche, and butter-scotch leave a long and lingering finish. The mouth feel is rich and full bodied yet is balanced with acidity and freshness.
"Pure, rich and complex, with a core of fig, melon, citrus and green apple flavors, showing pretty touches of spicy, toasty oak and a long, clean aftertaste. Drink now through 2020." V.B.
