Alder Springs Vineyard
2012 Mendocino Chardonnay
From its aromas of peach, pear, toffee and toasted coffee to its soft, velvety mouthfeel, this is a rich and seductive Chardonnay. On the palate, lovely flavors of pineapple, lanolin, custard and roasted hazelnut are underscored by a viscous mouthfeel. Though deep and nuanced, there is also a purity and persistence to this wine, as well as good acidity that helps draw the lush flavors to a long and lingering close.

- 91+ Points | “Slightly hazy yellow-green. Ripe aromas of pineapple, pear, lemon custard, lime and hazelnut, complicated by smoky, flinty minerality. Silky and uncompromisingly dry, showing a distinctly savory quality to the brisk pineapple and mineral flavors.” - Stephen Tanzer
