2011 The Crusher Chardonnay
Smooth and fresh, with a touch of zest and nuances of pear and almond flavors
Rich blonde in color, this full-bodied Chardonnay displays vibrant vanilla, key lime, and citrus aromas. Smooth and fresh, with a touch of zest, there are nuances of pear and almond flavors intertwined with the classic California Chardonnay profile, and an edge of tangerine that gives this wine a unique slant. There is also a nice underpinning of limestone and minerality that provides structure, and a clean, toasty finish from the gentle six months that this wine was aged on French oak.
