Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Deliciously rich and layered, showing bold fig, honeydew melon and apricot flavors, with more subtle hints of citrus, mineral, creme brulee and cedar. Deftly balanced, ripe and expressive, without weight.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

The 2009 Chardonnay UV-SL Vineyard emerges from the glass with rich apricots, pears, flowers, and tangerine, all of which come together in a dramatic, sweeping expression of Chardonnay. In 2009 the UV-SL has a rich, baritone register that is compelling. The aromas and flavors build effortlessly to the textured, creamy finish.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
