IWC 91
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, June 2009
Bright yellow. Musky peach pear and apple fruit aromas and flavors are complicated by flowers and herbs. Concentration and precise with a dusty impression of extract and very good length.

Concentration and precise with a dusty impression of extract and very good length. Quite strong for this no-malo chardonnay. Bo Barrett is now vinifying with a higher percentage of whole clusters and getting less bitterness as a result. "So now we don't need as much new oak to compensate" he noted adding that 2007 was an outstanding vintage for chardonnay as there was no heat stress. 91 points

The 2007 Chardonnay offers up aromas of white peaches apple skins and crushed rocks presented in a fresh medium-bodied dry zesty format. Drink it over the next few years (some vintages can age over a decade).
