2010 Dierberg Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley
Immediate impressions of Meyer lemon and orange blossom are followed by aromas of hazelnut, allspice and Fuji apple. On the palate, the wine is sleek and refined, with a lithe texture and mouthwatering acidity. Flavors of citrus, Fuji apple, tangelo and lightly toasted hazelnuts—echo the aromatic impressions of this Chardonnay, creating seamless wine, at once powerful and impeccably balanced. The finish shows the minerality for which Dierberg Chardonnay has become known.
