Bonterra Chardonnay 2019 – 750ML

TP 90

At Bonterra, we grow wine organically and sustainably, treating the land with deep respect. We plant native flowers around our grapes to attract beneficial bugs, and welcome songbirds and chickens into our vineyards to eat up pests. We even employ sheep to mow between the vines. In our vineyards, every living thing is connected and we all work together to create pure, flavorful wine.

Tasting 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.

Tasting Panel

90 points || While almost half of the grapes for this outstanding and vivacious white were sourced from Bonterra’s vineyards in Mendocino, organic vineyards from other cool- and warm-climate regions of California were also carefully chosen. Seventy percent of the wine fermented in a combination of French and American oak and the remainder in stainless steel; it then aged for six months, again in a mix of stainless steel and oak. A dollop of Viognier, Muscat, and Sauvignon Blanc adds floral and sweet citrus notes, and aromas of honeyed sage, Golden Delicious apple, and lemon blossom are plentiful. White-peppered pear zings on a palate that gets its creaminess from maple-kissed pineapple and brioche. Thanks to good acid structure and a touch of stoniness, it holds up well to light and even slightly spicy fare.
