Rodney Strong Chardonnay Estate Chalk Hill 2012 750ml

Rodney Strong Chardonnay Estate Chalk Hill

91 Points Wine & Spirits : This shows a lot of oak at first in its scents of toast and coffee, but there’s a pleasant glow to the fruit underneath. It feels at once burnished and bright, with creamy richness turning toward lifted aromas of chamomile flowers as it absorbs air. It’s a polished chardonnay for crab. Encouraging malolactic fermentation added additional character, and in the glass the wine is both creamy and crisp, with abundant fruit character, mineral, and toasty oak flavors. Enjoy over the next one to three years.

Founded by wine industry pioneer, Rod Strong, in 1959, Rodney Strong Vineyards is now owned by the Kleins, a farming-based family that prides itself on land stewardship and a relentless push for superior wine quality from Sonoma County. After purchasing the company in 1989, Tom Klein began the endeavor that today brings together excellent vineyards, the industry's finest winemaking equipment, and exceptional talent. The winery farms and sources grapes from vineyards throughout Sonoma County, focusing on Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Chalk Hill. Rodney Strong Vineyards is best known for its estate-bottled and vinyeard-designated wines, and is also recognized for their sustainable and Fish Friendly Farming, dedication to solar energy production and coming carbon neutral in 2009.
