2014 Dierberg Chardonnay Estate Santa Maria Valley

A balanced and friendly Central Coast Chardonnay

2014 Dierberg Chardonnay Estate Santa Maria Valley

This smooth, even-tempered Chardonnay suggests pale yellow fruits and honeysuckle doused in cultured cream. The body is nimble and juicy, with well-integrated tropical and tree fruits; pineapple takes the keynote. While there is an influence from oak, it’s used as a seasoning, not a main ingredient. Silken acidity winds things down.
