Cholame 2012 Chardonnay

The Cholame 2012 Chardonnay comes from La Presa Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley, a 40-acre site perched on a gentle slope overlooking the Santa Ynez River. Winemaker Andres Ibarra has been managing La Presa Vineyard since 1985 and has produced many 90-plus rated wines from these world-class vines. Having the unique advantage of managing both the vineyard and the winemaking tasks allows Andres to have complete control and the ability to produce wines in his exact vision. The Cholame 2012 Chardonnay is a tropical medley of fruit with notes of apple, citrus, vanilla, crème brulee, and almond. The finish is crisp, clean, and lingering with zing of lively citrus zest. [+]
