Very nice wine. It does have a nice crispness, yet balanced with oak. It is $2 more than some very comparable Chards, though this has a bit more complexity due to the minerally edge.

Notes on the Estancia Chardonnay Reserve Pinnacles Ranches 750ML 2011

Tasting Notes Bright pear, apricot and fig with hints of cinnamon, allspice and vanilla.
Flavor: Ripe fig, honeydew melon and pear with a dollop of pineapple and lemon custard. Subtle

Technical Notes Estancia Chardonnay grapes are grown in our Pinnacles Vineyard on the east side of the Salinas Valley at the base of the Gabilan Mountains, With additional fruit from the Santa Lucia Highlands to the west. The cool climate and sandy, well drained soils keep yeilds low and fruit intensity high.

The 2011 harvest began with an unusually wet spring followed by multiple cloudy days during the first few weeks of summer. These cooler weather conditions allowed the vines to develop slowly before the summer heat crept into the valley. The result was a shortened growing season which attributed to an elegant, full bodied, mouth filling Chardonnay. A dollop of oak highlights the ripe stone fruit flavors and tropical notes and add a soft, creamy finish.
