Bonterra Organically Grown Chardonnay, Mendocino County, 2015 (750ml)Winemaker's Notes
An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey and lightly toasted almonds, followed by tropical aromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and crème brulee. The wine is refreshing on the palate, with a minerality that is both bright and clean, drawing you into a vibrant tartness and lemon zest that is absolutely, positively Bonterra Chardonnay, vintage after vintage.

Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe fruit meets butter and spice in this medium-bodied, smooth and integrated wine. It opens with Bosc pear and golden apple aromas, melding with vanilla and marzipan notes, its richness of flavor nicely buoyed up by acidity."

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "Over-delivering for the money, the 2015 Bonterra Chardonnay— made from organic grapes—is a delicious wine, and one of the best values in the marketplace. The wine shows bright apples, with enticing notes of cream and sweet spices. The smooth finish makes it a quaffable delight. Drinks well now. (Tasted: January 5, 2017, San Francisco, CA) "
