Neyers Carneros District Chardonnay 2009


SKU 100440


A Chardonnay that, while rich and exotic, is also subtle and complex. Over the top wine is not our objective, hence our restrained use of oak cooperage.

Wine SpectatorFresh floral scents, with notes of apple, pear, spice and light oak, lead to a full-bodied palate, intense and vibrant. This is slow to unfold, but ends with pure, refreshing fruitiness. Drink now through 2017. 5,600 cases made.

Wine AdvocateNeyer's most Chablis-like Chardonnay is probably the crisp, citrusy 2009 Chardonnay Carneros. Medium-bodied, with crisp apple skin, white peach and citrus oil notes, the wine is medium-bodied and fresh, with subtle earthiness and perhaps some oak, but the fruit and minerality dominate. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
