Wine review: Santa Barbara Winery Chardonnay 2012, California Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2012
  • Region Santa Barbara
  • Varietal Chardonnay
  • Price $21.95

Poll 10 fans of California chardonnay at random and at least eight will, I believe, cite the sort of profile embodied in this well-made example. Full-bodied, it delivers succulent, forward tropical-pineapple fruit in a round, silky package with excellent mid-palate heft, notes of cold butter and vanilla and a fresh, lively finish. Various prices in Alberta.
