2007 Rhys Vineyards Alpine Road Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay

13.7% alc.. Left on the lees until bottling. Unfined and unfiltered. · Chalky minerality runs through this superb wine. Accents of smoky oak, pear and citrus add interest. There is a lingering taste of lemon meringue pie on the finish which offers a refreshing grip of acid. Reviewed February 25, 2009
