Dierberg 2006 Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley

Extraordinary ripeness, spiciness and crisp, cool-climate acidity. Just beautiful, with exotic flavors of grilled pineapples, honeysuckle, lemondrop, cinnamon and buttered toast. This 2006 vintage is rich, hedonistic, and drinks deliciously now. Deep tangelo, grapefruit and lemongrass aromas are balanced with fresh lemon peel notes and a creamy hazelnut impression, while on the palate, the wine is all citrus, lemon rind, lemon curd and lemon blossoms.
