Highly aromatic and shows apple, pear and oak notes. Crisp aroma replays are fruit-driven on the palate. Hints of spice on the long finish. Good balance overall. Tasted Oct/2013.

The 2011 Bachelder Saunders Vineyard Chardonnay has appealing aromas of quince, light citrus and light honey. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine, with good acidity and a medium to long finish. It is food friendly; drink now -2016. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted at International Cool Climate Chardonnay – i4C event July/13.
