One suspects though, the fact that we have added 4% and 2% Viognier Muscat this chardonnay is far closer to the...

The combined forces of French and American oak tell a yellow brick road aromatic tale. This winds along a golden...

Chardonnay is splashed with viognier and muscat in this off dry, floral white. Apricot oil and mandarin weave through...

The 2013 Bonterra Chardonnay, sourced from Mendocino county and composed of 89% Chardonnay, 6-7% Viognier and Muscat and aged for 8 months in both French and American Oaks; has inviting aromas of toast, butter, vanilla, pecan and quince on the nose and gooseberry, pineapple and wood on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with crisp acidity and a long finish. It is a food friendly and sipping wine; drink now and for the next 5-10 years (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 88-89 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'Bonterra tasting at iYellow Wine Cave' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.
