Cambria Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay 2008


SKU 7263190000280


This Chardonnay has aromas of fresh pineapple, white peach, pear, and green apple. The same fruit characters are on the palate and are accentuated by a bright, balanced acidity and subtle oak spice. The finish is lingering, clean and crisp.

Wine EnthusiastShows lots of flamboyant pineapple, pear and green apple flavors, with a deft touch of smoky oak. But the wine is uplifted by a firm, steely minerality, as well as fine acids. It finishes a little sweet. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard shows good varietal character and fine balance with well-articulated fruit and an attractive, clean finish. Though a bit oaky, this is otherwise a strong effort, particularly considering the production of 24,000 cases. The wine was fermented in oak barrels (25% new) and aged on its lees with batonnage for seven months. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
